Layco, Ross and Company, the makers of La Roco, established it's business in 1918. The west coast city of Seattle was selected as the firm's location -- an unconventional choice as most costume jewelry was produced along the east coast, notable in New York and Rhode Island. Scant information exists about LaRoco but it appears to have produced jewelry until at least the 1960s.

The climber style clip earrings presented, circa 1950s -1960s, feature fine, silvery coiled leafy forms sparkling with large marquise rhinestones in blue and aurora borealis and accent chaton rhinestones in light blue and blue. They follow the ear, leafy points up.

The earrings measures a generous approximate 2 inches x 1 inch with a 3/8 inch profile or height. Marquise rhinestones are 15 millimeters x 7 millimeters; largest chatons, 6 millimeters. Weight of the earrings pair is about 22 grams.

Condition is excellent vintage. All components intact. All rhinestones intact, retaining colors, treatments and brilliance. No chips nicks, cracks or breaks to stones. No cloudy or dead stones. No dents or improper bends to metal components. All soldering secure. Silver tone finish intact, fronts and backs. Earring clips strong and secure. Clean. No damage / no repairs. Excellent vintage.

Each original earring clip signed in familiar script: "La Roco". Circa 1950s-1960s.
