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.
All of that said, you'd expect a significantly higher price. Somewhat paradoxically, it's low because the earrings are in such wearable condition. The prior owner had some work done to shore up vulnerable points -- not technically repairs, but preventive strengthening measures. While functional, it isn't pretty. Fortunately, it's only from the backs and these dots of solder could easily be matched to the metalwork by dabbing 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.
