Panetta Vintage Rhinestone Hoop Earrings in Brutalist Modern Style
Gorgeous vintage Panetta hoop earrings with elegant timeless style. Pave set rhinestones accentuate the subtle curves and are a glitzy contrast to the brutalist design and texture of the gold tone hoops.
Beneditto Panetta immigrated from Naples Italy in 1945, and began designing small productions of high end semi-precious and costume jewelry in New York City. His pieces are rare in the secondary market as there were not many produced and were also quite expensive. Panetta creations are wearable investment pieces, and works of art.
1 1/8" long x 3/8" wide.
Bitchin Retro Notes: These earrings are in excellent vintage condition, have been thoroughly cleaned and given a light polish. *Of note, there is a small area of plating loss on the inside of the earrings, please see photos. We did not see any evidence of verdigris, just the discoloration. 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.
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.
