Castlecliff, sometimes marked Castlemark, produced from circa 1918 - 1977, using the Castlecliff signature first in 1941. In later years it was absorbed by Carnegie Industries and subsequently Lucien Piccard. One of it's most talented artists was Larry Vrba, renowned designer from the house of Miriam Haskell.
The gold tone french clip earrings presented, circa 1950s, use trios of specialty glass beads encased in heavy wire basket settings. Two of the faceted round beads display givre (frost) treatments, one in tangerine, the other, raspberry. Third smooth (no faceting) bead is in a finely striated peach shade. Colors, treatments and textures coordinate beautifully in edgy mid century modern settings.
The earrings measure approximately 1 inch across with a 7/16 inch profile or height. Beads are about 10 millimeters. Weight of the earrings pair is 15.8 grams.
