Beautiful solid vintage 30's-40's Mexican jade leaf decorated screw back earrings. These are very well made and detailed in decoration! The silversmith has mounted a round cut and polished brilliant green jade stone in the center set into a smooth silver bezel. The artist decorates by mounting a stack of three (3) detailed silver leaves above the stone, coiled twisted silver wires which flanks both sides of the stone, and a stack of three (3) silver drops under the stone. The artist has cut evenly around the decoration on the outer rim leaving no excess sheet silver exposed and finishes by attaching a sterling silver screw back ear clasp on the back of both earrings.

Each earring measures 1" tall by 11/16" across and weighs 2.2 grams (4.4 grams for both). They are stamped SILVER - MEXICO on the back and guaranteed sterling silver or better. Mexican silversmith are know to use higher grade silver which this set is at least .925 (92.5%) or could be as high as .950 (95%) silver. Silver has to rate at least .925 to be classified as Sterling. Base on the age and quality of detail I classify the earrings as vintage collectibles. Since the earrings have a heavy and even patina, we haven't cleaned and will leave it up to the customer whether to clean of not.  $69.95
