Perfect to enjoy in an election year, here's a spectacular example of World War II Americana: sterling earrings that explode into fireworks in the red, white and blue hues of Old Glory!
Extremely well-made with masterful silverwork and prong-set rhinestones, these historic earrings are in fabulous condition and huge, too: 2 1/4" tall and almost 2" wide.Obviously, they'll make you the belle of the ball at every patriotic gathering, not to mention the voting booth.
The screw-on backs are original, right for the Retro period, as is the sleek and curvy Moderne styling. Earrings just don't get any more 1940s than these - and did you know manufacturers were forced by wartime shortages of other metals to use high-quality silver, even for costume jewels? That's why so many pieces from this era are sterling, and each of the earrings is marked such. I'm surprised to find no other marks, since these are so finely crafted. If you prefer post fasteners, your jeweler can easily make the switch.
