Vintage screw back Vargas signed earrings feature a simulated opal surrounded by clear rhinestones in a mid century era style. Earrings measure slightly more than 1/2 inch long and 1/2 inch across. The opal is about 3/8 inches long and in a raised dogtooth style setting. Rhinestones are prong set.
Marked with a diamond shape and a V for Vargas, a mark that was used in the 1940s.
Ca. 1940s to 50s
Dressy, high fashion, special occasion
Very good vintage. The rhinestones are still quite clear to the naked eye and show only slight signs of aging when viewed with magnification.
Please remember that these are vintage and more than 20 years old (closer to 70) and some signs of use or wear are to be expected.
Please see photos as they are an important part of the description. I am happy to answer questions or provide more photos if needed.
