A name synonymous with fine mesh bags and jewelry as well as superb glass intaglios and cameos, Whiting & Davis also produced a limited line of exquisite rhinestone jewelry. Check out these marvelous '60s vintage watermelon rivoli rhinestone ear clips. So called watermelon aka vitrail, because of the juicy melon colors of green, purple, red and pink tinged with flashes of gold and rivoli because of the unique pointed and faceted fronts and backs. Whatever the medium, Whiting Davis went the extra mile to offer the best of show.
The button style clip earrings offered begin with large watermelon rivolis secured with continuous fine saw tooth bezel settings. First tier is a band of shiny gold tone followed by a middle ring of hammered or beaded gold tone. Open work golden scallops form bases. While the settings accent, the stones are the unequivocal stars in these beauties -- scene stealers every show.
The earrings measure approximately 1 inch across with a 1/2 inch maximum profile or height. Rivoli stones are about 18 millimeters. Weight of time earrings pair is 18 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. Rivolis intact and free from chips, nicks, cracks or breaks, displaying premium color dispersion and characteristic rivoli reflection and sparkle. Gold tone finishes intact with some minor wear to reverses only. Earring clips strong and secure. Clean. No damage / no repairs. Excellent vintage.
Each original earring clip is signed: "WHITING & DAVIS CO". Circa 1960s.
