Earrings are always alittle more difficult to find when shopping vintage. Some have very strange looking screw-on backs that look like you need a screwdriver to open them up–yikes. Earrings, to me, are always the easiest piece of jewelry to lose. Whether an earring back falls off, and you lose one earring or the snap-bar closure doesn’t “snap” tightly enough. I’ve experienced it all…and I’m sure you have. Lately I’ve been having the problem of falling asleep with my earrings on, and in the middle of the night, unconsciously, I’ll take them out and fling them somewhere. Not good. Anyways, here are a few estate earrings that I found while browsing. Enjoy!
So cute and dainty, these diamond dangles are true reflections of the Edwardian time period. They are from Ross-Simons estate collection, and are priced at $6800. There are 2 carats of diamonds and set in 14k yellow gold.
These are also from Ross-Simons estate collection. They are from the 1930s and are so stunning, whether you would wear them day or night. The green stone is a jade cabochon, which is surrounded by black onyx rectangles–very unique. Of course there are loads of diamonds and the earrings are set in platinum. Price: $6200.
Lastly, these chic, turquoise enamel earrings are from Adin fine antique jewelry, located in Belgium. These would go great with many of the trends right now. They are 18k yellow gold and are priced at about $124. I wish I would’ve rocked these in my new driver’s license photo I had to take this morning…of course after waiting hours in line.
