These vintage earrings were crafted sometime after the Mid Century design period, into the Modern Era (1970-1990). These large vintage earrings feature luscious 18K gold and black onyx, punctuated by small white diamonds and white pearls. During the 1980’s large earrings were beloved statement pieces. One might remember the large button earrings or “door knocker” earrings such as these were all the rage during this particularly bold design period. Onyx, diamonds, and gold were a popular combination; as were brightly hued colored gemstones. These large earrings measure approximately 1 & 7/8 inches in length and are secured by large french clip style clasp closures. Large gold statement earrings have recently made a comeback as the perfect choice to elevate your personal style.
