More about this item

Vintage Sterling Silver 925 Mother of Pearl Drop Earrings Garnet Stone Pierced Ears Shepherd French Hooks Feather or Leaf Pattern White Carved MOP Luminous Applique Faceted Gemstone Handcrafted Hand Made Large Big Boho Hippy Style Artisan Designed Dangles Pearlesque Shell Ocean Sea This is a lovely pair of elegant handcrafted earrings that I have owned for many years, probably from the 1970s or early 1980s. They are made with carved Mother of Pearl shaped like an elongated diamond in a capped 925 Sterling Silver setting. There is a lovely delicate and detailed feather or leaf applique with what appears to be a Bohemian Garnet faceted inset gemstone (although it has not been tested), it may be a dark red rhinestone. The bezel setting is surrounded by a curved ball design. The earrings are stamped 925 on the backs. The earrings measure approximately 2 1/4 inches long and 1 inches wide. They hang down from the top of the ear wires to the bottom of the earring approximately 3 inches. The earrings are in really great vintage condition as you can see by the enlarged photographs. There are no chips, cracks or damage to the MOP. I have not polished them as many people prefer the patina that comes with age. I will leave any polishing up to you. Because they are handmade, each silver applique is slightly different than the other. The garnet stones seem to be fine, if there are any defects they will only show with magnification, there may be a microscopic flea bite on the edge of one facet, I couldn't tell for sure. Please look at all the photos as they show the details better than I can describe and are considered part of the description. This would be a nice addition to anyoneโ€™s collection of vintage sterling jewelry. The earrings will look great with your favorite pair of jeans for that casual chic look or with that little black dress for a fancy evening out. They would be perfect for a bride as an accessory to the wedding gown (something old) or as an anniversary or birthday gift for that special person. They are wearable pieces of artwork that are sure to bring compliments. The earrings will be sent 1st Class Mail with Tracking/Delivery Confirmation and Insurance.
