Vintage De Mario N.Y. loaded with glass amethyst and rose monte earrings are being presented for you, these have it all and are in excellent condition. If you are a purple (amethyst child) how can you resist! Don't think or wait long though.
Layers upon layer of gilded filigree, describes their construction best; that will grab you first and then the sparkle, WOW! On the top, a rose montee accented gilded leaf layer and as one looks into the depths of these beautiful earrings your amazed at the shear number of rhinestones both light amethyst and dark amethyst packed in among the beautiful multiple layers of gilded filigree. The earrings size of 1 inch in diameter by even their large height of 5/8 inch proud is quite deceptive as to how much color and intricate interaction is going on within this dynamite pair of earrings! They also seem to have been caught in a time warp, as there is only some very minor wear to the gilding, not to mention you have to look hard to find that; truly an exceptional find for anyone's wardrobe accessories collection, or for any occasion.
Robert DeMario, the designer of this pair of earring is referred to as a disciple of Miriam Haskell in many reference books and although Haskell Jewelry denies that he ever worked for them, her influence on his construction and designs is undeniable. De Mario Jewelry (1945 - 1960) has never been plentiful in the market place and it is becoming difficult to find pieces of jewelry by this magnificent designer in good condition let alone as fine as those offered here. His name has for decades been a coveted find for the most discriminating lover and/or collector of fine quality costume jewelry!
