Vintage Coro Diamond Rhinestone Earrings c 1950
Free U.S. Shipping
(& Gift-Wrap if Desired)

As the holiday season approaches, it's time to think rhinestones. Keep a pair of dazzling earrings in your purse and you'll always be party-ready.

This classic pair by Coro will add a properly festive note to anything from jeans up. At an inch round, they aren't overwhelming, but the domed shape allows for quite a load of rhinestones -- certainly more than 100, all told. Sizes vary somewhat, for the pave effect; however, most are quite large. A few are probably later replacements, as is almost inevitable with vintage earrings of this form. What little metalwork is visible is bright silvery-white, probably rhodium or chromium, one of those hard-wearing cousins of platinum. The metal remains brilliant on the reverses, as well, requiring high magnification to note slight wear. These must have been kept for special occasions and stored carefully. The fasteners are clips, as is right for the period, and each has the Coro signature in script. Provenance is a West Coast estate.

There's no charge for insured U.S. shipping and gift-wrap is always free when desired. Please e-mail to confirm availability, order or request more photos. Thanks for looking!
