Massive Vtg Oscar De La Renta Couture Pearl Emerald Duster Runway Clip Earrings:
MASSIVE VTG OSCAR DE LA RENTA COUTURE PEARL EMERALD DUSTER RUNWAY CLIP EARRINGS
SHOW-STOPPERS! QUINTESSENTIAL 80'S STATEMENT PIECE! ONE OF A KIND ~ THESE ARE THE ONLY ONES I HAVE SEEN ON THIS CALIBER!
CLIP ON earrings, signed "Oscar de la Renta" in 2 places on the back of each earring ~ these are in excellent vintage condition. Quite light weight, secure and perfect working condition clips, feature a WHOPPING massive 3-Dimensional,drippy, waterfall style chandelier drop which is QUITE stunning. Earring falls 5 1/8" long, and 1 1/2" wide, with gorgeous MOVEMENT to the drops. Faceted faux jeweled stones (lucite or plastic as they are lightweight) in an exquisite EMERALD GREEN, with the creamy faux pearl cabochon medallion on the clip - stunning ROYAL COLORS! EXTREMELY WELL KEPT and stored over the years. AMAZING jewel toned shades - this piece brightens the face instantly! TRUE SUPERMODEL-ERA RUNWAY JEWELRY!
When I think of the late 80's Supermodel Era, I think of pieces like this. Of course, this type of statement costume statement jewelry was meant to be piled on ~ I remember seeing my favorite models wearing earrings just like this, but with tons of gold pendant necklaces, cuffs on each arm, and a gold chain belt with charms ~ see my scans to inspire you! SERIOUS STATEMENT!
I've included editorial pictures from Vogue and Elle (1988-1992) for inspiration on how to style this bold Maximalist/Baroque statement earring look! Enjoy!
CONDITION: Excellent vintage - with a some minor wear throughout - see pics for all details. A few of the lucite faux emerald stones may have been glued in/repaired as a few of them are very slightly off center ~ hardly noticeable, but needs to be mentioned. These may have been customized by a stylist (I have received a lot of such custom made pieces for editorial and/or runway styling from this era). Unique and I can bet, one of a kind!
Also please NOTE: All 24 pics can be double clicked and zoomed in for close-up views. My descriptions are quite thorough, however if this is not sufficient, I am ALWAYS available to answer questions. Therefore, there should be NO CONFUSION as to what you are offerding on prior to offerding and/or after the sale. I appreciate responsible buyers who know how to shop online - i.e. read full descriptions, perform their own analysis based on photos, measurements and description, and are able to make an informed decision. You know the rules! :-)
Thank you... and Good luck!
