For Sale: Part of my Antique Button and Cufflinks collection. These friends of mine make a career restoring vintage and antique jewelry. Their specialty, traveling all over the world, finding the Last Century's 'castoffs'...buttons, cufflinks, ect., and re-inventing these into One of a kind earrings. They use laser welding in lieu of messy soldering and always the wonderful vintage style shepherd ear wires are made of solid 14k gold.
These earrings are of late Victorian/Art Nouveau enamel and Saphiret. They started life circa 1895 as a lady's sash buckle. The round face of the earring reminds us of a Tiffany stained glass shade. Set within a crescent fired with black glass enamel are two striking roses on a bed of leaves. Each petal, each vein in the leaf is visible having been guilloche engraved and then decorated with beautiful yellow and brilliant green glass enamel. The piece de resistance is surely the Saphiret jewels which glow a dramatic moony blue. Even more outstanding is that these "gems" are rose cut as diamonds of the era and they actually have their captivating glow plus glitter from light reflecting from the facets. Saphirets were made in Czechoslovakia in the late 1800's by mixing gold into molten blue glass. The result, a stone which has a brown background which then flashes a spectacular blue. The earring face is made in gilded brass and measures 27mm in diameter with the earring hanging just over 1-1/2" long. They weigh a total of 11.6 gram. The vintage style shepherd ear wires are made of solid 14k yellow gold.
