Christian DIOR Vintage Faux ‘Ruby & Diamond’ 1967 Earrings
Truly exquisite vintage DIOR Faux 'Ruby and Diamond' clip earrings made in 1967. As is well documented for Dior pieces, the craftsmanship and quality of materials used in the production of these earrings is exceptional. These gorgeous earrings are made from chromium plated silver-tone base metal and set with layers of high quality faceted crystals including the spectacular faux flawed ruby cabochon crystals. The Dior jewellery designers ensured the highest quality crystal stones with each stone prong set into hand soldered settings. These clips are especially interesting and beautiful as they incorporate the striking faux cabochon ruby surrounded by marquise clear crystal rhinestones. It is quite incredible to consider the amount of workmanship that went into these earrings given the materials are not precious metals or stones. A true hallmark of top end costume jewellery of which Dior were amongst the very best. The earrings have the full DIOR markings and are dated 1967. They are and are presented in excellent wearable condition. The earrings measure are substantial and measure 3cm wide and have a lovely depth owing to the layered construction. Divine with denim and blouse for a glamorous twist or indeed with something dressier for a night out, holidays or a special occasion.....a wonderful piece of increasingly hard to find vintage DIOR for you to treasure and enjoy.
