These are my "Audrey Earrings" stones (Audreys were my best-sellers and the staple of my earlier "Estate Collection" line of jewelry) set in brass with a sterling silver post soldered to the backs of each by moi.

If you'll indulge me to tell you a little about these stones: I used to have quite a nest egg of them, but now that they have found homes in the far-flung regions of the world gracing the lobes of many a cherished customer, they have dwindled to a tiny little stash. This stash I was going to keep for myself because these are the "tarnished ladies"; they have acquired a patina much like an antique silvered mirror. I love them to bits even so, because although I think the brand new Swarovski crystals I am currently selling are utterly brilliant, there is a special place in my heart for rhinestones that have been loved and have lasted through the years.

Finally, it occurred to me that perhaps I am not the only one that appreciates this subtle, tarnished beauty and will be offering a small batch. Please remember before purchasing: These stones are over 60 years old and they have "imperfections" commensurate with their age. Also, no pair will look exactly the same, although what you see in the above photos is a fair representation of what you will get. If you would like to specify if you would like more or less "patina" in the notes to seller I will do my best to accommodate you.

Details:

Metal: Brass and sterling silver
Earwires: Sterling silver posts with butterfly clutch
Stones: 12mm vintage faceted glass
