This is a pair of 1952 Juliana Ear Wrap Chignon Earrings in Clear Crystal Rhinestones DeLizza Elster D & E Book Piece. All the crystal table cut square, baguette, and round chatons (all the various sizes) are brilliant and bright (one of the very smallest chatons in the frontal section has a bit of darkening to it). The earring is designed to wrap around behind the ear with the smaller tip placed at the front of the ear. I have small ears and they do not fit well. Please note: In order to wear the earrings, you would have to have a fairly substantial ear size and lower lobe so they wont come off. The larger part of the earring covers the ear while the dangles drop down about where clip-on earrings would normally fit on the lobe. They measure 3 1/4 inch long. I have never seen this early pair of Juliana earrings before and they may not have been produced in a large quantity. I would consider them rare or hard to find. The 1952 earrings are dramatic and different. For reference, please see Juliana Jewelry Reference/Identification and Value Guide by Ann Pitman page 15.
