Here’s something completely different from my usual posts. My mother was going through some things that her mother owned and showed me these earrings. I know we have some folks here interested in vintage jewelry and I thought I’d share. Mom thinks they date to the 1930s. She’s the one modeling them in my photos.
The first pair of earrings has a wire that goes behind the ear like eyeglasses. I have no idea if this type of attachment was common. While I was taking out the earrings to take the photos, I felt something else in the box. Beneath the padding in the box was a necklace my mother hadn’t seen!
The last two pictures show another earring. The arrow that seems to pierce the ear has a hidden screw post behind it. Unfortunately this earring has lost its mate.
