Absolutely gorgeous! Great retro earrings date from 1957 and are in absolutely impeccable condition.
Each earring consists of seven bright light amber glass stones- (more like a champagne color with a hint of orange) formed into a flower shape. Glass is fully faceted and pointed on the top as well as the bottom of the glass.
The top five petals each have dangles suspended from them.
Earrings are clip on screw backs. You can adjust the screws to tighten or loosen the earrings.
Dangles include: a) Two rounded cubed multi colored art glass stones showing clear to light root beer color with a black swirl inside, each suspended from a light amber faceted stone having the same cut as one of the flower petals.
b) Two crystal aurora borealis faceted drops each having two suspended AB stones, one having a gold tone beaded filigree cap
c) Center drop stone of set root beer rhinestones channel set in gold tone metal between, having amber cut stone at top and bottom.
Crystals are Swarovski, as Swarovski made beautiful faceted crystals for renowned jewelry designers including Vendome. And boy, do they ever sparkle like mad.
Vendome was Coro's highest end line that was intended for wealthier audiences. And as can be expected the quality is superb.
Earrings measure 1-1/2" in length and are 1-1/4" wide. Backs are marked Vendome.
