Romantic Retro Romeo and Juliet Earrings
Enter wearing these and you'll exit knowing everybody noticed.

Clearly, these rank among the most dramatic of earrings, featuring Juliet on her balcony as Romeo kneels below. The figures and their ornate frames are of gold-tone metal, richly complementing the background of deep red enamel (or perhaps celluloid). The stylization of form is pure 1940s -- evoking Boucher's Parisina line of dancers and skaters produced during World War II and the fasteners are clips, as is right for the period. Size is a substantial 1.25 inches round and provenance is a West Coast estate. The quality is so good that I'm very surprised not to find a maker mark.

There's no charge for U.S. shipping (with an equivalent discount on international delivery) and gift-wrap is always free when desired. Please e-mail to confirm availability, order or request more photos. Thanks for looking!
