From my personal collection- The unusual and superbly designed earrings offered here, were created by one of the foremost European jewelry manufacturers, the German firm of Henkel and Grosse who were also the sole licensed producers and distributors in Europe of the Christian Dior jewelry.
Crafted from the highest quality thermo-set molded Lucite, the clip-on earrings have a diagonal rhomboid shape.. A beautifully designed,, longer than the width of the earrings, gold-plate metal wide, ribbon-like, ring wraps around each earring , in a south-north direction. The slightly domed ring folds, at both ends, over the back of the Lucite base . The earrings’ clips are affixed to the fold of the ring, at one end and seem to be an integral part of it. The other end of the ring is slightly elongated , by a triangularly shaped tip, and protrudes from the earring, adding to it an additional length and design dimension. Each ring-ribbon is paved with 5 rows of brilliant, prong set, round Swarovski crystals The GROSSE signature is stamped on each clip. The simple elegance of the earrings, combined with the unusual and modern design, is timeless and would be a welcome addition to a Grosse jewelry collection or a favorite go-to couture fashion accessory, particularly during the summer months or a vacation in warm climates..
