Obviously, these are 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.
