ZOE COSTE Jewelry was sold exclusively, in very high end boutiques in the 1970's & early 1980's, it is scarce in the market place today and highly sought after by collectors, we have loved and hunted it for years! We have been contacted by a lovely women who once worked for one of Zoe's boutiques, who explained to us that Zoe Coste jewelry was distinctive, always had a limited production and sold for extravagant sums to a loyal eclectic following. You will not see her jewelry listed for sale often and it is always a joy to be able to offer it to you, our exclusive and discriminating clientele.
These very detailed earrings, have repose base metal work and the cherub and eagle are applied applique style over the top of repose base. They measure a large 1 5/8 inches in diameter and are 1/2 inch proud, for all their size the repose work construction keeps them lighter than their size might otherwise indicate; a trend with Ms. Coste's followers love, making them easy to wear! Both earrings are signed, Zoe Coste and Made in France, in an oval cartouche; both clip backs function properly and there is only very light age appropriate surface wear to report ( which is difficult if not impossible to distinguish from the earring's antique finishing ). Striking stand-alone additions to any collection; the perfect accessory for so many occasions, seasons, events and ensembles, not to mentioning that they are pure WOW wearable art! (K0798)
