Vintage 1950s Sterling Silver Gold GW Hard Stone Intaglio Cameo Clip-On Earrings
Unique Design, Nor Reserve, Free Shipping

This is a fabulous pair of sterling silver gold washed clip-on earrings designed in the 1950s. The earrings are comprised of a hard stone, most likely agate, with an amethyst glass pendant dropping below. The reddish brown agates feature an etched Intaglio cameo of the profile of a Classical warrior. The large oval glass amethyst pendants are beautifully faceted and sparkle when they catch the light. The earrings are signed by the maker, however, the signature is somewhat obscured making it difficult to discern.

The earrings have a length of 2 1/8". The cameo stone measures 5/8" x 1/2" and the faceted glass pendant measures 1" x 3/4". Together, the earrings weigh 31.5g. In overall very good condition with some loss to the gold wash finish and a few nearly imperceptible dents to the metal. There is a very shallow chip in the stone of one of the cameos. This condition is consistent with age and use and does not compromise the integrity of the earrings. Marked for maker and sterling silver as pictured. These fabulous earrings will be a great gift for someone with a sense unique vintage fashion. Free shipping within the continental US.

    Our processing hours are Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST.

Customs policies vary widely from country to country so please contact your local customs office if you desire further information.
