What a great classic tailored look with mid century modern twists from Christian Dior. Large simulated pearl cabochons with a creamy, almost iridescent glow rise at the center of beveled shiny goldtone triangular dishes. Reflective angles and surfaces are evident from every position. Dior's New Look polished and perfected.
The clip earrings measure about 1 inch across from corner to corner. The profile or dome is approximately 3/8 inch. Each faux pearl cabs is about 13 millimeters. Although the earrings are relatively large, the metal is of a lighter gauge. The pair weighs in at approximately 14 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components original and intact. Simulated pearls retain all nacre and luster. No chips, nicks, cracks, scratches or abrasions to nacre. Outstanding sheen. Goldtone finishes intact. Clips strong and secure. Please keep in mind that although in excellent condition the earrings are mid '50s vintage and they will not appear brand new.
Each original earrings clip is signed "Chr. Dior" with the copyright symbol following. There is also a patent number at the end of each clip with the number corresponding to the year 1956. This number along with the design, materials, components and construction point to mid century vintage.
Christian Dior Vintage. Confidence. Character. Charisma.
