Made in the 1950s, these chandelier earrings may have been made by Hattie Carnegie. They were once clip earrings and probably signed, but the earrings have been converted to pierced earrings.
The earrings have 5 dangle strands each with long silver metal paddle links and tiny clear crystals as accents. Each earrings has a large silver flashed grey crystal ball and 4 light grey pearls that are acrylic beads with satin glossy finishes. The pearl beads also have fancy silver filigree flower bell caps.
Medium large in size, the earrings hang down 3 1/2" or 89 mm long. The grey pearl beads are 12 mm and the silver/grey crystals are 12 mm. The earrings have impressive size but are not heavy to wear. The ear wires are silver metal with a domed oval bead on the front and safety closures on the backs. The ear wires are new and never worn.
Both earrings are in spectacular pristine clean condition. There is no silver metal wear or loss of silver and the large crystals don't have any facet wear. Some of the grey pearl beads have scant, very tiny paint chips from rubbing.
Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new luxury presentation earring box.
