A stunning large pair of vintage clip Earrings by the British design duo Butler & Wilson. In an antiqued gold color metal, the Earrings are set with imitation pearl cabochons which are pearl lined glass so, with the textured 'natural pearl' surface, they give the impression of genuine baroque pearls. The Earrings have 3 large puffy pendant drops which although quite large (the heart measures just under 1 inch across by 1 inch down) being hollow are light in weight. The Earrings are signed on the back 'Butler & Wilson'.
The Earrings measure 1 3/8 inches across and 3 1/8 inches top to bottom. The Clips are set quite low on the Earrings so the imitation pearl set part sits quite high on the ear, with the part of the earrings hanging down from the lobe being just under 2 inches.
The Earrings sit flat against the neck so although they are large, they are quite discreet and are especially flattering for someone with larger ears.
The Earrings are in excellent condition with no damage and are comfortable to wear, although I do suggest fitting comfort pads to the clips as personally I think that they make larger earrings feel more secure - but that is personal choice, the clips on these earrings do hold them securely and comfortably. The only problem that I find with these earrings is that they are quite noisy for the wearer as the pendants knock together with movement! However, they look so fabulous that the slight noise is a small price to pay and to be honest, you soon get used to it.
