Robert and Original by Robert were trademarks of the Fashioncraft Jewelry Co. of New York from 1942 to 1979. The company was founded by Robert Levey, David Jaffe, Irving Landsman and Larry Joseph later joined the group. The trademark changed to Robert Originals Inc. in 1960. Their jewelry used excellent design, workmanship and materials, commanded high prices and supplied jewelry to the motion picture industry. Robert Levey the head designer was as colorful and imaginative a person as he was a designer ( he is sometimes referred to in reference books as a disciple of Miriam Haskell though there is no direct link between the two ); he retired in 1975, but the company continued, soon changing its trademarks. Their older jewelry is always on our hunt list and highly collectable!
These beautiful earrings have lots of sparkle, textural interest and layers packed into their ample 1.2 inches by 1.2 inches of size, not to mention a 1/2 inch of height! With Rubylane's scan able feature you should you be able to get a feel for the dimensions when you click to look at at them in full screen view. Around the central large baroque silvery glass pearl there are three faceted honey gold faceted glass elements and then three prong set clear white rhinestones surrounded by gilded brass. Each properly functioning clip back is signed, Robért, and each still retains their still functional original 'cumfee' ear pad. Very nice size and condition indeed; they will work so well with so many of your today's fashion. These display only desirable age appropriate mellowing and light wear to the finish nothing in our opinion that detracts from their stunning appeal only that, that on very close inspection affirms their age and authenticity. Special vintage handcrafted designer earrings that will be an especially nice find for your wardrobe accessories treasure chest! (H042b)
