Vendome Earrings Vintage Rhinestone Faux Pearl Starburst Published Book Piece

Bitchin Retro

$29.00 

Exquisite vintage Vendome earrings with aurora borealis rhinestones encircle a center faux pearl. Delicately wired faux seed pearls surround the composition. Some see a carnation/ruffled floral, and others a patriotic star. This earring style was produced in several colors, is very collectible and is a featured "book piece" in two publications. The screw mechanism for customized comfort and security in addition to the clip is unusual.

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. These earrings are in very good to excellent vintage condition. Please view all photos with zoom to see characteristics of this listing, and note the measurements provided, as we do use a telephoto lens to show as much visual detail as we can. 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.
