Robert De Mario's vintage rare climber earrings with filigree layers of gilt, crystal art glass, as well as, topaz and amber rhinestones combine in a curved shaped earring that hugs seductively close to the outline of ones ear. They are in very good 65-70 year old amazing original condition and they measure a large 2 1/4 inch across their length and 1 1/8 inch across their width. All the components appear to be original and none are missing, the rhinestones all sparkle brilliantly with minimal age related foil deterioration and on very close inspection only a rare tiny glass flea bite could be noted. A true treasure for any wardrobe accessories collection.
Robert De Mario, 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! (L7262)
