Vintage Abalone & Sterling Butterfly Earrings
Hand crafted vintage butterfly beauties! Natural abalone is inlayed within each sterling wing with NO cracks or breaks. Shades of Pinks and Blues with Dark Brown veining shimmer in the sunlight. These were originally purchased back in the 1950's by a lady named Virginia during a vacation in Mexico. She loved to travel and would pick up little mementos, usually in the form of jewelry! Smart Gal. Her family is looking to find a few good homes for some of her pieces. These earrings are in great condition and proper working order with the artisan stamp of CRB. The backs look to be stamped as Alpaca silver which was the norm on vintage pieces. During the war era metals were more scarce and artisans would use more alloyed forms of silver and gold for jewelry. Hopefully these cuties bring a smile to your face and will find a forever home with you or a loved one.
