Hattie Carnegie Clear Crystal Chandelier Earrings 1950s Jewelry
When Hattie Carnegie made crystal chandelier earrings, she took the term chandelier literally!
Made in the 1950s by Hattie Carnegie, these commanding chandelier earrings are made of very unique kite shape crystals. This design is VERY RARE to find.
The crystals are arranged in true chandelier or lantern form. the gold plated findings are arranged in a spiral or circle so the crystals hang in cylindrical form. There are three round gold plated findings, forming the cylinders, that are adorned with clear rhinestone chatons, all prong set. At the top is a large faceted chaton and at the bottom is a cluster of diamond shape bicones completing the design.
The crystals are 1950s top quality Austrian crystals with exceptional light refraction ability. The earrings are clips and they are the slender lever style that are comfortable to wear. Despite the massive appearance of the earrings, they are not so big in person and not heavy to wear.
Medium large in size, the earrings are 2 5/8" or 67 mm long x 1 1/4" or 30 mm wide. The kite crystals are 10 mm long each. These earrings are not signed but they are a famous Carnegie design. They can be seen in Cherri Simmonds book of Collectible Costume Jewelry.
The pair is in pristine clean like new condition with no imperfections or flaws and have never been worn. The gold is bright and like new with no wear. All of the crystals are sparkling clear with no facet wear, chips, or cracks. The clips are like new as well and in perfect working order.
