Dear folks, up for sale, I have magnificent looking and very rare early vintage silver RETRO earrings. Made by modernist very nicely with 22K pure gold. The earrings are in excellent condition, but one pierced wire is mounted to the back 2.5 mm higher than the other.
It does not bother at all because the screw is behind the ear so it is a minor thing. However, I want you to know about this. I did not notice this until today while taking pictures. Please check all photos very carefully.
It was designed like this by an artist a long time ago. He could have possibly made one earring and after a while another one and forgot that the wire he mounted in the middle should have been a bit higher or it was done on purpose. These earrings are made by hand so it was time consuming for sure. They were made by someone famous because I have seen them in a book many years ago, and the price on them was pretty high, but I cannot recall who made them.
The size of it is a bit over 2 7/8" long total and the round circle is 1/2" in diameter plus the drop is 5/8 wide in the widest point. The earrings have engraved on the back "S/S", "22K". There is no artist signature as far as I can see.
They were in the storage for almost 30 years and never been used. The item "Vintage 22 Karat Gold-Sterling Silver-Art Deco-Modernist earrings" is in sale since Tuesday, March 01, 2016.
