SCHRIENER Gripoix Opal Glass Fruit Salad Earrings 1950s Jewelry
Made in the 1950s, these earrings were obviously made by Schreiner but are not signed.
They are a very eccentric pair with unusual molded glass cabs in pears, navettes, and marquise shapes. There is a combination of opalescent glass, molded givre' glass, faceted crystals, and an Aurora Borealis rhinestone at center. The colors are Citrine, lemon yellow, burnt orange, and opalescent yellow/white.
The earrings are made of gold plated metal and all of the stones are prong set.
The earrings were once clips but have been converted to pierced.
Medium large in size, the earrings are 1 3/8" long x 7/8" wide or 35 mm x 25 mm.
The earrings are clean and in very good condition. All of the stone are in great shape with no chips or cracks. There is some light gold wear on the backs. The AB rhinestones at center have a slight haze on the table top facet. Behind the opalescent pear shaped cabs you can see the glue on the backs which is just how the earrings were made. It only adds a slight yellow tint and some darker spots to the white opalescence. The ear studs are brand new.
Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new presentation earring box.
