Rhinestone Vintage Earrings
A gorgeous pair of rhinestone earrings, authentically vintage from prior to 1950. They have a screw back mechanism which first appeared in the late 1800's and was popular until the clip on earrings took over in the1950's. They came about at a time when piercing one's ears was frowned upon. The measurement across the earring is 2cms. The rihinestones are clear and bright and sit in a two dimensional flower head pattern. The screw back is firm and comfortable...the trick being to tighten until its felt, and then back off. In perfect condition, and gift boxed by Vintageonline.
