While fine quality handbags and jewelry in mesh are synonymous with the Whiting and Davis name, the company also produced premium jewelry featuring exquisite art glass stones. Rarely did they use rhinestones, opting for the ageless beauty of unfoiled glass stones, unblemished by time. The large chatons offered, in a rich mahogany shade, prove it's selection wise. Multi prong, open back set in deep cradles, the '60s vintage gold tone clip earrings are as fashionable today as when created. Whiting & Davis' jewelry was made to last, both structurally and stylistically. Truly, a quality maker from concept to conclusion.
The earrings measure approximately 7/8 inch across with a generous 3/8 inch height or profile. The faceted round stones are about 17 millimeters. Weight of the earrings pair is approximately 18 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components original and intact. Deep topaz glass stones free from chips, nicks, flea bites, cracks or breaks. Gorgeous color depth and warm glow.
