Art Deco Earrings Black Enamel, Gold and Glitter
Large and spectacular in art deco style, these vintage earrings with post backs feature abstract turtle shell shaped sections of smooth jet black enamel and sparkling silver glitter, each bordered and defined by gold interior curved lines and exterior edges.
Elongated rounded rectangles, they are have slightly domed ( convex) fronts and convex hammered, solid gold plated backs.
The style is elegant, sleek and sophisticated - definitely statement jewelry from grown-up women who appreciate the classic look of well made costume jewelry with modern, 20th century retro flair.
- Each earring measures approximately 1 1/4 inch tall by 5/16" wide. The studs are about 3/8" below the top edge.
There is no maker's mark or other identifying symbols or signatures, and - as this design is rare and hard-to-find, we can't tell you their designer, date or manufacturer.
Our best guess: This pair was created in the USA, probably sometime between 1970 and 1990, perhaps to celebrate the resurgence of the Art Deco ( Streamline Moderne) Movement which began in France and influenced fashion, art and architecture trends from the 1920s to the mid- 1940s.
As with all our vintage pieces, these earrings have been meticulously cleaned and sanitized for your safety and comfort. We've replaced the original pushback earnuts with gold plated butterfly clutches, ensuring that you can wear them with confidence that they are as pristine as when they were brand new.
