What a treat to find the dated Hollycraft pendant style dangle earrings in the desirable pastel shades. Hollycraft button style ear clips are widely available -- the larger pendant types, a challenge to find.
The Hollywood Jewelry Manufacturing Company was in business from circa 1938-1971. It's poplar Christmas jewelry and dated jewels are of special interest.
The brass tone shield style pendant earrings presented are loaded with the original rhinestones in oval, square, chaton, and pear cuts in Hollycraft blue, red, pink, and green shades. Simulated seed pearls frame top and free swinging bottom sections.
The nicely sized clip earrings measure approximately 2 inches x 1 inch at their widest point with a 7/16 inch maximum profile or height. Oval rhinestones are about 6 millimeters x 5 millimeters; imitation pearls range from about 2 millimeters-3 millimeters. Weight of the earrings pair is 24 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components intact. All rhinestones intact, retaining color and sparkle. There are about three or four of the prong set chaton rhinestones that have dimmed a bit. We have opted to leave them original. All major oval, square and pear shaped stones brilliant. All faux pearls intact, retaining nacre and luster. One pearl has tiny amount of wear. Brass tone finish has signature Hollycraft patina with very minor finish wear on reverses only. Earring clips strong and secure. Clean. No damage / no repairs. Excellent vintage.
Each original earring clip signed: "HOLLYCRAFT". Reverse of each earring body signed: "HOLLYCRAFT" and "COPR. 1951".
