Christian Dior Germany 1950's Rhinestone Earrings

Bitchin Retro


Rare and collectible 1950's Christian Dior rhinestone earrings. Quintessential Grace Kelly style and class. Beautiful sapphire blue stones have an ombre quality which slightly darken at the tips. Unique, faint layers and swirls of blue can be seen in certain light, while the clear rhinestones just pop in the cosmic mid century design.  

2 cm wide x 2 cm long.

We clean, inspect and return vintage treasures to their best possible condition. Decades of old makeup, dirt and dust are removed and pieces receive a light polish. This process takes many attempts and sometimes hours of work. This is in stark contrast to most sellers. Our vintage jewelry is ready to wear, and in the best possible condition we were able to provide. It is a labor of love, and we think it shows in our photos and in person.

Bitchin Retro Notes: These earrings are in very good condition, have been thoroughly cleaned, and given a light polish. One peculiarity is noted - one of the sapphire crystals has a small chip which is literally tucked under one of the prongs. The face or plateau of the rhinestone is barely altered, and we almost did not catch it.  Our guess is this was passed thru at manufacture, or was taken to a very good jeweler afterwards, who concealed the chip. These stones would have been rare at the time, and much more so, since. With the exception of this small chip, all other stones are in excellent vintage condition. Please see photos. We had to really zoom in to show the flaw, and as so, it appears larger in the photos than it does in person.  Secondly, there are sections of plating loss. No pitting, or indications of previous verdi gris, but silver plating loss, as shown in photos, and not visible as worn. Please see condition descriptions below.

Vintage jewelry is rarely perfect. We will do our best to note any obvious flaws, but flea bites, and small scratches are to be expected. Please view all photos with zoom to see characteristics of this listing, and note the measurements provided, as we use a telephoto lens to show as much visual detail as we can, and this may enhance size perception. We would be happy to answer any questions, or provide additional photos. 

Condition Descriptions: 

Excellent = very little to no visible wear, though minimal flea bites/scratches may be seen thru a loupe or magnification. 

Very Good = normal wear and tear typical for the age which can be seen up close, as well as flea bites/scratches seen thru a loupe.

Average = Significant wear seen with and without a loupe. We will note specifics and provide photos. 

We want you to be happy with your purchase, and have provided information to highlight the features and any imperfections or vintage love on our pieces. We also share condition descriptions (and lots of pictures) so that you are aware of how we arrived at our opinion. If despite our best efforts we miss something, we will be happy to work with you. 

Give us an opportunity to make it right...because we will.
