Vintage Castlecliff hand-wired emerald green nugget glass element earrings in a gilded nest with filigree accents are in very good to excellent vintage condition.
If you did not turn them over and read the signature, Castlecliff, you could certainly be fooled as to their creator, being ala Haskell in style, construction and quality. Dynamite fashion statements, these measure just over an inch in diameter and 1/2 inch proud. They are hand wired onto a filigree base and they are gorgeous. These are vintage displaying desirable age appropriate mellowing with light wear to the finish, nothing in my opinion which detracts from their stunning appeal (some might consider small signs of vintage use undesirable), I revel in a find like this as proof that affirms the age and authenticity of the pieces, they will receive a gentle professional hand cleaning, if needed, but no attempt will be made to cover up any of their vintage previous 50 to 80 beautiful years of life. Your questions about a specific item for sale in my shop are always welcome. Classy and classic are written all over these stand alone beauties, perfect for so many ensembles in your wardrobe now, not mention their use for holiday events and way, way beyond that to event you choose to wear them!
Castlecliff's ad motto starting in 1945 until their end in 1970 was "The Talked about Jewelry" and almost every piece of it we have picked up makes us realize why! Beautiful designs, components, construction and execution, rank this company among the finest jewelry companies the U.S.A. has ever produced. Prior to Castlecliff the company began life in 1937 as Castlemark and signed its creations briefly by the same name, from 1941 until the name change to Castlecliff in 1945; finding some of these early signed scarce pieces can truly be a FIND! Wonderful designers too; a name like Larry Vrba, had his historical design beginnings there as head designer. Fascinating beautiful and innovative pieces like this one remain in excellent condition after all these years for good reason and their jewelry is always on our hunt list. (K0402)
