    Bold, Beautiful, Classy and Sparkling, Signed Vintage Sterling Silver, Mother of Pearl and Marcasite Angled Bilevel Square Pierced Earrings. Mother of Pearl is notoriously difficult to photograph, and these earrings were no exception. The pink, green, and blue color play is noticeable and lovely in person.

   Each earring face measures just over approximately 11/16 of an inch, or about 17.5 millimeters, wide when measured as a square, when measured as worn at an angle, each is about about 13/16 of an inch, or approximately 20.6375 millimeters, corner to corner. Each earring face measures just over approximately 1/4 of an inch, or about 6.5 millimeters, deep. (Included is a US Quarter in the photographs, for the measurement-challenged and ruler-averse.) Each is stamped, "925", on the brand new deluxe-sized clutch, unsigned. Each earring is stamped, "925", on the back, and signed , "W". Combined weight is approximately 9.53 grams, which includes the marcasite weight, of course.

  These are vintage earrings, which have been worn and enjoyed. They will have the expected light surface scratches to the silver from normal wear. The posts appear to be pretty straight. The clutches are brand new deluxe oversized replacements for the missing originals, and hold quite securely. No missing or chipped stones, no damage to the mother of pearl. Hand polished, but probably there is a bit of tarnish remaining, particularly on the backs.

   A very pretty, well-crafted, pair of
signed vintage Sterling silver, mother of pearl and marcasite earrings. Strong profile in a large but feminine design, with subtle sparkle and beautiful natural iridescence.
