Gold over sterling Hess-Appel's Jolle mid-century figural large rose blossom earrings with clear white rhinestones are being offered for your consideration. These beauties are in excellent condition and each is signed, Jollé, by the famous jewelry house of Hess - Appel N.Y. ( 1943-1957 ). Hess - Appel and Jolle rate more than a page of discussion in the famous and authoritative Brunialti's book, American Costume Jewelry A – M, on pages 211 and 212. In addition they are each signed, Sterling, twice; once each on their back and again on the stem of the properly functioning French clip backs. These earrings are large, measuring 1 1/2 inches in diameter and 1/4 inches proud they are gorgeous fully open rose blossoms and solid silver weighing 21.08g, 0.74oz or 0.68oz troy, combined. These each have a large central rhinestone and 5 smaller rhinestones spaced between the outside petals with the outside petals each having 4 rhinestones on their ends; none of the stones are missing, none are dead and all sparkle ( we cannot be positive, a couple of the tiny ones may be replacements, but are sized correctly if they are ), most do show slight signs of their age when viewed closely, light peppering and some light yellowing. Light wear to the finish is the only other thing to report; the gold plating is in very good condition and these look dynamite on! Classy and classic are written all over these stand alone beauties for your accessories wardrobe! (H043)
