We insist on crafting every piece of jewelry by hand...it must first pass from hand to hand through a long a rigorous process…featuring brilliant Austrian crystals..each piece in the collection is hand polished front and back” – from 1990’s Swarovski Company flyer.
From my personal collection- The Swarovski Company had launched their costume jewelry line in the 1977, Sometime in mid 1980’s, I spotted the magnificent and rare earrings, offered here, in a jewelry showcase at Bloomingdale’s, New York City. I purchased the pair along with another pair of teal blue crystals earrings of identical design.
These brilliant, timeless and elegant earrings should be a staple of any wardrobe since they are suitable for most of tastes. A stunning red square, brilliantly faceted, bezel set, crystal cabochon, dominates the design and is surrounded by luminous round clear crystals. The clear crystals are set in rhodium plated prongs and framed on both sides by two 18 KT premium gold plated metal rings which also hold, back and front, the huge blood red rounded crystal . The earrings’ base and clips bear the designer mark: D.S.Co.
