…….Jewels from the Ali-Babba Treasure Chest….
From my personal collection- I have always referred to these magnificent, runway couture, earrings as the jewels from the Ali-Babba treasure chest...The splendor of them represents one of the best versions of the Mogul style jewelry which, in the 1950’s, was interpreted, adapted and introduced in modern design by Christian Dior Chanel, Trifari, following the earlier adaptations of same by Coco Chanel. Mogul jewelry style, genre and design became known as “The Jewels Of India” or “L'Orient".
Three lustrous, emerald, ruby and sapphire oval shaped, Swarovski cabochons are bezel- set in a triangular cluster on a domed open work premium gold plated base. They are surrounded by three, same colors, smaller round Swarovski cabochons. Clear and brilliant round Swarovski crystals surround the jewel cabochons in a beautifully crafted channel setting, while the smaller, round jewel cabochons are prong-set and complete the dome-like structure of the earrings. The back of the earrings bear the CINER signature and copy right mark.
About the Designer: It was not until 1931 that CINER, a renown designer of fine jewelry since 1892, had switched their production to the high end fashion jewelry. Ever since , CINER designers have maintained the high standards not only of their spectacular designs, but have used only rich enameling, heavy metals and premium gold and silver- tone plating, assuring substantial feel and the longevity of their jewelry. Their jewelry, many of which successfully imitate fine jewelry, is known for being incrusted with the finest quality of glass beads, crystals and stones by Swarovski and their imitation pearls are produced in Japan. In the past several years, CINER began using semi-precious stones in their fashion jewelry, Their vintage jewelry remains in high demand among the collectors
