Sarah Coventry's "Midnight Magic" design earned status in the company's "Prestige Pieces" division. It was a departure from the firm's more conservative lines, instead featuring big, flashy (albeit smoky) glass rhinestones and powerful japanned settings. Extremely popular with clients, Midnight Magic continues to be a favorite among collectors and aficionados.
The centerpiece is the rectangular, windowpane style, smoky quartz colored glass panel rhinestone. Two tiers of twisted rope borders interspersed with black beading twinkle with pink chaton accent rhinestones throughout. Coventry's Midnight Magic proves where there's smoke there's fire.
The earrings measure a generous 1 1/4 inches x 1 inch with a 3/8 inch profile or height. Window pane rhinestones are approximately 25 millimeters x 19 millimeters; pink chatons, about 2 millimeters. Weight of the earrings pair is approximately 32 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components intact. Large smoky quartz rhinestones free from chips, nicks, cracks or breaks. Wonderful beveled windowpane effect. All foil backing intact.
