Easy to wear and easy to love, these cameo earrings offer classic good looks. Just clip and go! Beautifully boxed, ready for gift giving, plus Fast & Free shipping to USA.
With cameos featuring 1930's beauties carved from carnelian shell, these earrings are perfectly sized at 3/4" tall by 5/8" wide (19x15.7mm), The cameos alone measure 16x12.5mm. The frames are 12K gold fill with the cameos bezel set with twisted rope surround and engraved accent that adds a sparkling halo. These earrings are fitted with original non-pierced clips, so no bungling with challenging screwbacks needed. Just clip and go! Together, the earrings weigh 6.5 grams.
The clips are hallmarked "1/20 12K G.F." and "Pat. Pend.". The first earring clip was patented in the early 1930's and we estimate age of these earrings to be 1940's.
The cameos themselves are opposing images (facing) of two similar sisters perhaps. Both are blessed with a short and sassy hairstyle complete with those jelly rolls on top. Both women were given detailed yet delicate facial features, but both decidedly different. The shells are supple and without chips or peeling. The carvings of both women comprise 90% of the face of these cameos, so the background appears darker than many carnelian shell carvings. This makes it so easy to mix and match with the darker sardonyx shell cameos. Eclectic elegance.
The gold fill frames are in excellent condition with no dents, scratches or loss of gold plate. The clips operate perfectly and are comfortable on the ear. Hooray!
These retro beauties are sure to please the cameo lover in your life. We like the clip design and the pristine condition and so will she!
They will be delivered in a lovely presentation case, perfect for gift giving and storage, along with a copy of our easy came care instructions.
