CHANEL VINTAGE MATELASSE GRIPOIX DROP CHANDELIER EARRINGS WITH LARGE CREAMY PEARLS + GRIPOIX JEWEL + GRIPOIX TEAR-DROP DANGLE - 1980S These vintage gold-tone CHANEL earrings are of a three-level drop chandelier style, with a poured glass gripoix jewel, pearls and dangle teardrops of matching gripoix. The gripoix is a rich burgundy red color, and has the desired poured glass striations and un-evenness of a true vintage piece.The pearls are also of glass gripoix with a slightly Baroque shape, and have a creamy color. At the top of these earrings are the square-shaped gripoix glass jewel, in a raised mount with a decorative Renaissance style border and a matelasse backing. Suspended along the bottom edge of this mount are the large creamy pearls, and below that are the matching burgundy tear drop gripoix pendants. The mounts are gold-tone, with a shiny gold-tone finish. The backs are beautifully finished in the matelasse, and have a high yet mellow gold shine. Curiously, each one has a slight variation to the matelasse pattern at the back. These earrings are of good weight, and fall gracefully when worn. These earrings have a gold-tone clip earring backing, which functions as it should - not too loose and not too tight. A very usable and stunning piece of wearable art. In Good condition, with the pearls showing areas of slight yellowing and chips to the pear finish.
All of the gold-tone metal is bright and shiny, but with the exception of the connecting wires on the pearls only, which appear to be corroding slightly. This is not very noticeable, but does deserve a mention. Overall Dimensions: 2 3/4 inches High x 3/4 inch Wide These pieces date from the 1980s.
