Fred Harvey Era STERLING SILVER & Faux Turquoise Screwback Earrings!

Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer for your consideration....

AGE: C.1950/1960

ITEM: A pair of silver screwback earrings in the Native American/Southwest Indian style, featuring cabs of faux turquoise. Back in the days when NA/SI jewelry was all the rage, supply fell far short of demand and compromises had to be made as the turquoise mines were producing nuggets as fast as they could. Well, it wasn't fast enough and in order to appease all price points, some makers decided to use faux or recon turquoise to set in their silver designs. They wanted to please the masses, and please they did!

CONDITION: Excellent with no problems I can spot.

METAL CONTENT: Sterling Silver

HALLMARKS: STERLING on the back of the screw mechanisms.

SIZE: Fronts measure 1" x 3/4".

WEIGHT:10.4 grams combined

FINAL COMMENTS: Don't like screwbacks? Well there's enough room on the back for conversion to posts - either by way of a jeweler or DO IT YOURSELF with glue! Just cut off the screwback stems and Bob's Your Uncle!

Anyone want?

Effective 1/29/13 - Regarding Overseas Delivery.....

New postal rates and Import Regulations are in place for the shipment of jewelry to other countries.

My UNDER $35 listings I will ship First Class International however I can only calculate postage when I know where the piece is going so I'll put POSTAGE TO BE DETERMINED in the International Section. Rates have gone sky high since the Jan 2013 price increase - just as an example, 2 ounces to Canada is $6.49 (my average weight for sending), 4 ounces to Italy is $9.55. OUCH!

Any purchase OVER $35 must be checked against the new Import Regulations before I can send. Again, postage will be determined AFTER I check the regs. If you want to save time, please contact me BEFORE placing a purchase order so I can give you a more accurate idea as to whether or not I can send and/or how much postage will cost. Each individual country now has its own particular set of rules regarding shipment.

Currently, shipment of jewelry to MEXICO, SINGAPORE and THAILAND is strictly PROHIBITED by the USPO. If you are from these countries please contact me before placing a purchase order.

UNITED KINGDOM – Costume Jewelry can be shipped Registered Mail; Fine Jewelry (silver or gold) still has a total restriction from sending out of the United States AUSTRALIA, ITALY, SPAIN, RUSSIA – Priority International Only.
