These earrings have bright rhinestones in an aged brass setting. The clips are clearly marked "Austria". These are nice examples of early clip fasteners combined with the crystal glass stones Austria is so famous for. I doubt whether they are as comfortable for long term wearing as later clips, but they feel fine to me! Also suitable for decoration a purse, a hat or even shoes.
These date from There are no dead or darkened stones. The brass may have originally been shinier, but I am leaving them with their aged patina. The clips work well.
