    Pretty rhinestone clip-on earrings I found some time ago, flea market find. I like their design, but I am not sure of they are new, or vintage. Now that I checked the photos closely, they do have some minor wear signs, so might be the earrings are not new - so maybe 1960s / 1970s ?
    Vintage, or not vintage? That is the question... :)

    Mystery Solved

      They are so pretty! I guess someone more specialised can say from the back clip shape :-)

      Definitely vintage! Not sure why the tear drop shape clip would be used with this icy geometric shape motif. Maybe a mariage of 2 different designs? So nice by the way :-)

      I was gone the entire day today, selling my stuff at the local market. Just now catching up on what's here, lol!

      I don't think the earrings are too old - 1970s- 1980s. The clip design is meant to be covered with earring "slipcovers" to cushion the feeling on the earlobes. Other types of earring clips held those little round cushions which were pushed through the hole at the top of the clip.

      Thank you, Valentino and Efesgirl!
      I would like to see your stall with the stuff you are selling, Efesgirl :DDD
