Fabulous Pennino earrings! The design is so beautiful! The crystals are perfect and so bright and sparkly, in a lovely silver tone setting. There are 4 faux (I believe) pearls in the design.I love how there is a diamond shaped opening in the center - it really adds to the design elegance. These really sparkle. There is one small spot of nacre that has come off one of the faux pearls - you can see this in the 3rd photo - it is difficult to see and no one will ever notice. Just beautiful. These clip earrings measure 7/8". The clips are tight and each earring is marked Pennino on the back of the clip
The Pennino Brothers used only the highest quality stones and materials, and their workmanship is always superb. Pennino jewelry first began in 1908, but the brothers formally begin the Pennino Brothers company in 1926, in New York. Their factory was located on East 49th St. and sales office on 47th Street. Otto was the jewelry designer, with Frank the jeweler and master craftsman. Jack was the salesman and handled all relationships with their major accounts with many high end department and jewelry stores. They closed their business in 1966 due to ailing health of the brothers. At that time, they destroyed all of their jewelry molds, wishing their reputation to remain pure. Pennino jewelry is some of the finest costume jewelry made and is extremely collectible.
