$98.00

Gorgeous 1940's Mexican Chalcedony hand crafted vintage earrings. Beautiful carved green gemstones in a fan shape with sterling inlay and beaded borders. These would have been screw back earrings originally but a sterling french hook has been added at some time (the hook does not look shiny and new). Lovely dangle, beautiful little vintage earrings.

Spectacular vintage condition!! Shows mild wear commensurate with age, no dings or chips, will come with some patina, as level of polish is a matter of taste. The connector ring between the hook and earring on one earring does not look sterling, hooks and dangles are.

About this Piece

Sterling Silver

Sterling is an alloy of silver containing at least 92.5% pure silver (925 parts of 1000 thus the 925 stamp), the remainder is made up of a mix of metals (most commonly copper) used to make the metal workable. Pure silver is generally considered too soft to work with, although you can find silver jewellery at 950 or 980, even the occasional 99.9% fine silver, which can be work-hardened to increase durability.
