A vintage pair of cultured pearl and sterling silver screw back earrings. These earrings were made by a company that signs their jewelry A & L but I have not yet been able to identify exactly who that is. These earrings are amazing though being composed of a sterling silver metal base which forms the screw back setting and silver gilt filigree metal that holds the pearl centerpiece. There is a small cultured pearl at the top set in sterling silver filigree and another larger cultured pearl suspended from a ring at the bottom of the screw back loop. This dangling pearl is capped by an openwork sterling silver filigree that contrasts nicely with the luster and orient of the natural cultured pearl gemstone. The back of the screw is signed "A&L Sterling" and each earring measures 7/8" long by 5/8" wide. These earrings are in excellent condition with no wear or discoloration to the pearls or sterling silver at all. A great gift for birthdays or holidays like Valentines Day!
