Vintage R. De Rosa rose coral carved floral centered earrings with pearlescent 'baby's tooth mother of pearl petals ( the mother of pearl appears realistic, possibly faux ) either way, they are beautiful earrings and in excellent vintage condition.
Compliments will be abounding for the wearer of these earrings, they were created 50 or more years ago and just as many compliments will flow for you today as did then! These dynamite beauties measure a very showy 1 1/8 inches in diameter and a large 5/8 inch proud; the gilding is in as lovely condition as are the earrings. You must really look to find even minor wear to the finish and nothing in my opinion that might detract from their stunning appeal, anything one might be found only affirms their age and authenticity. A timeless addition to your accessories collection which will add a striking stand-alone statement of style and wearable art, the perfect accessory for so many occasions, seasons, events and ensembles.
R. De Rosa Co. was founded in New York City in 1934 by Ralph De Rosa who emigrated to New York City, from Italy, the son of a renowned family of jewelers. His company is best known for its exceptionally designed jewelry inspired by the opulent precious jewelry from the royal courts of the world, produced from highest quality components. After Mr. De Rosa’s death in 1942, the company was run under the same principles by his daughter Elvira, known as Vera, who was herself a designer, by his wife Virginia and his second daughter, Theresa. The company continued to produce jewelry until 1970 as R. De Rosa Co.; the jewelry was expensive during its time of production and is still highly collectible and sought after today. I love being able to offer my clients, such lovely earrings as these small gifts of history!
