Stunning, Oversized Vintage Sterling and Marcasite Pendant Earrings
These earrings are completely magnificent! They are an early Art Deco style, made in the 1980s when there was a resurgence and revival of the Art Deco aesthetic. Fashion, home decor and jewelry were all influenced by this revival and this pair of earrings is a perfect example! They are sterling silver with an elaborate fan-like design which is highlighted and enhanced with tiny beads of silver and glittering marcasite. They have matching decorative tops with posts for pierced ears and at the center of each pendant is a lovely blue topaz. The full length of the drop from the post to the bottom of the pendant is 2-5/8". At the widest point of the pendant the measurement is about 1-1/4". Considering the impressive look of these earrings they are surprisingly lightweight. (Each earring weighs 7.5 grams.) They are simply gorgeous and extremely eye-catching. They would be stunning as wedding earrings or for any special occasion!
