Vintage Sterling Silver Inlaid Abalone Poinsettia Flower, Leaf and Bell Screw Back Earrings - Signed D. Mejia #c995

Regular price $41.00
These beautiful handmade earrings are comprised of fine sterling silver and abalone shell. With their design, construction and hardware, they appear to be Mexican to me but are not hallmarked as such. The earrings depict poinsettia flowers with two leaves at the tops with beautiful silver bells that hang beneath them. The leaves have been inlaid with colorful abalone shell that adds a wonderful iridescence to the earrings when the light hits them. The bells have ringers inside but don't make a chiming sound. The earrings close with screw back closures. They are absolutely delightful!

The earrings measure about 1 inch long, 1 1/4 inches wide and weigh 9.8 grams. They are signed "D. Mejia Sterling, 925" on the backs of both earrings. I do believe they are Mexican but I could not identify this artist.

These festive earrings would look wonderful worn for the holidays but they also could be worn on many other occasions. They would make a great addition to a vintage jewelry collection and a very nice gift. The earrings are in very good vintage condition. They do have normal surface scratches and patina from age. Since they are handmade, they will exhibit irregularities in design and construction that would not be found in machine-made pieces. They have been cleaned and are ready to wear or to gift!!
