Spectacular DeLizza & Elster mid century rhinestone earrings climb and descend, complementing your face and jaw line in dramatic dazzle. Rigid curved channels of chaton rhinestones bolstered with sparkling marquises follow the ears up. At lobes floating, wire over rhinestone rosettes rest. Trios of free falling, graduated rhinestones fringe cascade down, each tipped with a pear shaped rhinestone. D & E's got you covered top to tip in sparkling splendor.
The clip earrings measure an impressive approximate 3 3/4 inches (from top of climber to tip of longest dangle) x 3/4 inch at their widest point with a 1/2 inch maximum profile or height. Rosettes are about 5/8 inch across. Chaton rhinestones are approximately 2, 3 5 and 7 millimeters; marquises, 10 millimeters x 5 millimeters and pears, 10 millimeters. Weight of the earrings pair is 26.2 grams.
