Oscar de la Renta Vintage Articulated Drop Earrings With Black Cabochons

Bitchin Retro


Understated elegance and timeless design. Oscar de la Renta vintage earrings with jet black glass cabochons and an articulated drop. Designer jewelry made to be worn a lifetime...

2" long x a generous 7/8" at it's widest.

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 excellent vintage condition, have been thoroughly cleaned, and given a light polish. There is an intentional slightly distressed quality to the brushed gold tone finish. It is very faint and superficial, and is accented by a black finish, that was allowed to settle into the grooves and striations. Without magnification, we could barely see it, and only if we held them up to a light source, and rotated the earrings.  This particular finish can be seen on other vintage Oscar de la Renta jewelry designs. Please see condition descriptions below.

Also of note: The black cabochons are highly reflective, and due to their curved and rounded nature, the reflections from our flash and light box dominated every photo. We removed the light reflections on the lead photo, but left one photo as is, so you could see the curvature of the glass cabochons. 

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.
