This exquisitely crafted vintage brooch and earrings set dates to the 1950s - 60s period and the figural parakeets or parrots are beautifully hand crafted from shell and coral, with aurora borealis rhinestone accents
The birds have heads made from whole zebra snail shells, with miniature orange shells as beaks, and bits of black shell or black enamel paint? as eyes. The stripes on the zebra shells are natural. They all have aurora borealis rhinestones embellishing their necks.
The bodies are an intricate assortment of layers of pink and mother of pearl coral and carved shell pieces, creating the delicate feathers and tails.
The earrings have silvertone clip backs glued to them, while the brooch has a brass colored pin with safety rollover C clasp set on clear lucite? that is glued on to the back of the body.

The brooch is about 2.25 x o.75 inches, and the earrings 1.25 x 0.5inch.
Condition is excellent, teeny tip of one tail shell of one earring seems flatter than the others so may have broken off, or that may be the way it was made.
They were never worn, just carefully stored wrapped in tissue paper in a jewelry box for all these years.

Please convo me with any questions, offers or to request layaway.
