Unbelievable Italian Micro Mosaic Dangle Earrings
Never before have I seen such gorgeous mosaic earrings! These are from around 1930 and were made in Italy. Each of the six pieces have a small imprinted stamp on the back that says "ITALY". They have a playfully clever design in that the center medallion of each earring matches the teardrop dangle of the other while the tops match each other. If all the pieces matched each other they wouldn't be nearly as interesting! These earrings are just brimming over with a worldly, artistic, eclectic charm!! They are the perfect combination of boho and high fashion. (Think Dolce and Gabbana!) The top element has a screw back mechanism which is ideal for earrings of this size. If you would prefer them to have a post for pierced ears just let me know and I can have them converted. From top to bottom they measure an impressive 3-1/2". Once in place, on your ear, the pendants will hang 2-3/4" (measuring from the base of your earlobe to the bottom of the teardrop). I consider them to be in excellent condition with no obvious imperfections. Please look through the photos for detailed views and keep in mind that these mosaics were made by hand!! Any irregularities should be appreciated as "character" not "damage". And you will notice in the photo which shows the back that the tops are a brassy tone and the bottoms are more of a silver tone...this is only obvious from the back. From the front all of the metal that is visible appears to have the same patinated color. These really are the most magnificent earrings I've seen in a very long time! Any questions at all, just let me know!
