Pure opulence! This is an elegant and beautiful hand-made pair of rare, signed Eugene rhinestone and gilt earrings, circa 1952 -1962 (Carroll, 2008). Made of wired layers of imported gold-plated brass findings in various shaped leaves, flowers, buds and fluted bead berries, the design is punctuated throughout with crystal clear rhinestone rose montees that sparkle brightly! These stunning and generously-sized earrings measure 1 ½" X 1 ¼" in diameter. They are in excellent condition with very clean findings and little plate loss. The EUGENE hallmark appears on the back of each clip.
Each piece of your beautiful vintage costume jewelry will be sent to you wrapped in archival quality, acid-free tissue paper and placed in a gift box tied with ribbon.
