From an era when everything was bigger and brighter, the Golden Age of Rhinestones followed (or perhaps led) the trend. Hollywood saw to it that their starlets were front and center, showcasing the latest, most dramatic jewelry. It was reigning rhinestones! The 1950s-1960s vintage earrings offered, in lustrous rhodium plate, offer "headlight" sized brilliant white chaton rhinestones from top to bottom. Lobe stones are surrounded by a framework of smaller stones. Center dangle is comprised of six generously sized stones while final drop stone is spectacular in dentelle faceting. Size, movement and brilliance is outstanding. The epitome of what was...and still is in rhinestone chandeliers.
The clip earrings measure nearly 2 inches long (1 15/16 inches) x 7/8 at their widest point. Largest stones at lobe and bottom drop are each approximately 10 millimeters. Weight of the earrings pair is about 20 grams.
