Oh, how your mouth will water every time you see these earrings! The color is delightfully tropical, but somewhat hard to describe... I swear, I looked up every fruit I could think of! It's somewhere between an orangey ripe papaya and a pink grapefruit. Slightly translucent in the light, it's one of those colors you don't come across often in Bakelite. And the earrings are big - the hoops measure 1 1/2" across with off-set 3/4" openings. They hang down about 2 1/4" from the 3/8" buttons. The goldtone hardware is riveted.

Condition is excellent with just light patina on the Bakelite and no real wear at all to the clips, which function just fine. And yes, they do test positive with simichrome. You might be able to see from the back view that the hardware was not centered, clearly by someone who never had to wear earrings in his life. So when you put them on, you have to take care when putting them on that they are straight and secure on your lobes. It's a bit annoying, but the earrings are still perfectly wearable. I have accounted for this in the price.
