Vintage Volupte Art Glass & Crystal Rondelle Clip Earrings, Silver, Coral, Turquoise, Mid-Century, Dangle, 1950's, Fabulous! #c230
I present today this marvelous and very rare pair of vintage Volupte art glass earrings! 

Volupte was a well-known manufacturer of ladies' high-end compacts from the 1920's through the 1950's. Volupte produced jewelry only for a short time in the late 50's, so finding Volupte jewelry is extremely rare. Their jewelry designs were so unique and beautiful, and many are one-of-a-kind finds.

These beautiful Volupte earrings are a design that I have not run across before. They feature silver button tops with art glass and crystal dangles. The dangles have round red coral glass tops, clear crystal rondelle spacers in the centers, and large free-form turquoise blue glass bottoms. The earrings close with clip back closures. The superb glass beads and their fantastic color combination create a mid-century modern riot of color! They are absolutely captivating!

The earrings measure about 1 5/8 inches long and 9/16 inch wide. They are signed "Volupte" on the backs of both of the earring clip backs.

These earrings are ultra cool and the colors are amazing! They are in excellent vintage condition for their 60+ years age. The silver finish of the earring tops is bright and shiny and the glass beads are perfect except for a tiny flea bite or two seen with high power magnification. The metal casings on the rondelle spacers have a dark patina from age (photo #7), but it actually only highlights the bright clear crystals held within them. They are a fabulous mid-century modern find!
