Retro Vintage Czech 3 Inch Blue Dangle Earrings Signed
If you have a blue party outfit, here are the perfect earrings to go with it. If you don't, these may persuade you to get one! Each opulent earring is dominated by two emerald-cut sapphire crystals and four teardrops, with accents of sparkling diamond white -- and, besides the intense color story, there's lots of action. The drops will sway on their diamante chains with your every motion.

In all respects including size, these earrings are outrageously glamorous. When they were made in the 1930s or 1940s, film stars had first begun to set popular taste and their luxurious jewels were duplicated best of all by the Czechs. The nation was Bohemia prior to World War I, remember, and they had centuries of expertise in creating and setting the finest glass gems. These all appear to be original and the earrings are in good-as-new condition, thanks to some recent work to shore up vulnerable points. The dots of solder on the reverses aren't actually repairs, but preventive strengthening measures undertaken to prevent potential damage. If the little areas showing a color difference bother you, it would be easy to dab on a bit of liquid leaf or gilding paste. I'd have done that, but didn't want to conceal anything. The prior owner also had the old clip fasteners replaced by posts, which most of us would consider an improvement.

The earrings reached us from a Palm Springs estate -- no surprise, in light of their quality. The maker, Husar D, was obviously a high-end firm.

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.
