Beautifully cut and constructed, the omega clip back earrings presented spotlight large, deep basket and heavy prong set, Ceylon cut blue art glass stones. Unfoiled and open backed, light filters in and reflects off the stones' finely cut facets. An arc of five clear, bezel set rhinestones top each earring. With expertise that rivals fine jewelry, certainly the work of a gifted and talented maker.
The platinum toned rhodium plate earrings measure approximately 11/16 x 9/16 with a 1/4 inch profile or height. Blue glass stones are about 14 millimeters x 13 millimeters. Weight of the earrings pair is 8 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components original and intact. Blue stones free from chips, nicks, cracks or breaks. Saturated sapphire blue color, crisp cuts and dramatic depth. All rhinestones intact and original. Some touches of dimming, commensurate with age -- akin to an old mine cut look. No dents or improper bends to metal components. All soldering secure. Rhodium plate intact, fronts and backs of earring bodies. Some finish wear to clip paddles. Omegas maintain grip. Clean. No resets, no damage / no repairs. Excellent vintage.
Reverse of each earring body is stamped with either the letter "6" or "9" depending on how it is positioned. Most likely a stone setter's identification, it is usually only included on very high quality work. Circa 1940-1950s.
