These are stunning sterling earrings, lavishly set with sparkling marcasites and black onyx in a decidedly Art Deco design with an unique twist.
Pierced earrings measure: 2-5/8 inches long and are 1 inch at the widest part. They weigh 12.4 grams on my scale. These are SOLID sterling, the metal is not hollow and is certainly not flimsy.
These are just amazing. So 1920s, flapper girl, Great Gatsby you will love them!
Made in three parts; top post set with marcasites is marked 925. The center cut out section has strong angle lines (SO DECO) and is also set with faceted marcasites. Then the third section has a unique, swinging joint. This joint allows a fluid but controlled movement.
Note: I have shown in one picture how this joint folds back. It also swing forward. Clever design.
These dangle, move and sparkle with the elegance that only marcasites can offer. These are beautifully crafted with exquisite work.
Above excellent construction: the faceted 6 sided, THICK pieces of marcasite are beautifully cut. They are bezel set and have a sterling bar across the back to hold them in place. The earrings are marked in 4 places .925 for sterling.
Condition: onyx is fabulous, sterling is above wonderful and the marcasites are sparkly!
PLEASE NOTE: Upon very, very close inspection one marcasite is missing. It is right above and next to one of the onyx settings. It doesn't detract. I would wear these to a 1920's themed party anytime!
