I love these early Christian Dior earring made by Henkle and Gross for them back in 1968. These are a very rare pair done in the fabulous mogul style known as 'Jewels of India' where they used carved precious gemstones. These are made from molded glass stones with deliberate striations in the glass to imitate real amethysts flowers with jade glass stems. Then bright rhinestones around the bulbous melon type stones. These are in excellent vintage condition with just some wear to the clips. The back are signed Chr. Dior with the copyright symbol, 68 and Germany. Earlier Dio is becoming so hard to acquire, but I've had these for many years now and I've always admired them but never had an opportunity to wear them. Please enlarge photos for details.
