Chandelier Rhinestone Earrings Chic Cube Midis Vintage Jewelry $85


You might think these 1950s chandelier earrings are an Art Deco design, but these boxy midi dangles were considered "Chic Ultra Modern" in the 1950s. The box dangle design is very uncommon to find and I don’t think this style was made for more than a couple of years in the mid to late 1950s.

 The earrings are made for pierced ears and are made of silver rhodium metal. The box design is slightly arched, slightly curved on the sides, and completely paved with high quality Swarovski clear crystals, all prong set. The stone settings are very tight and precise as the craftsmanship is exemplary. 

At the bottom are 6 short matching dangles. The dangles are the perfect length at 7/8" long as this length makes the earring swing sharply with just the slightest movement, unlike longer dangles that you have to stand on your head and bounce around around like Nadia Comaneci in order to get the long sections to swing!

 Overall, the earrings are 1 3/4" long x 5/8" wide or 4.4 cm x 1.6 cm. Unsigned, both earrings are in pristine like new condition and have never been worn. The earrings are microscopically clean and sparkling and all of the crystals are original, present, and super brilliant. There is no rhodium wear or any imperfections anywhere.
