Fabulous Vintage 80's Kaso Lucite Rhinestone Earrings Rare Find! Look
These amazing large earrings are an estate sale find. I was told they are from the eighties, designed by Harriet Bauknight and made by KASO costume jewelry company for Jacobson's fine department store in Grosse Pointe Michigan. Jacobson's went out of business in the late nineties after more than 100 years. They are an oversized acrylic egg-shape design paved with multicolor foil back glass rhinestones. Assorted colors of red, turquoise blue, hot pink and white.
NOTE: ONE GREEN RHINESTONE IS MISSING. Approximate Earring Measurements: 1.69 in. Long x 1.19 in.
One clip seems loose and falls off my ear so it would need adjustment. The gold tone clips seem to rotate a little at the connection. The back is clear and there is NO infused glitter or other embellishment.
Some foil loss on the rhinestones that is visible only from the back. One earring clip may have been re-glued. I will let you decide. Very nice condition for it's age.
They will arrive in a box larger than necessary and well protected. Thank you for visiting my listing. This item is in the category "Jewelry & Watches\Vintage & Antique Jewelry\Earrings". The seller is "trin2016" and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped to United States.
