Exquisite pair of dangle drop rhinestone earrings made by Panetta, one of the most respected costume jewelers in mid-century America. These clip-on earrings feature many of the touches that have made the Panetta name famous. The sleek geometric silhouette, with a kite-shaped ear piece and elongated pendants, reflects the Art Deco style that was in vogue when Benedetto Panetta designed jewelry for the Trifari brand in the 1920s and '30s. The surfaces glisten with clear, sparkling pave-set rhinestones accented with tiny marcasite-like studding and swirled around open scrollwork - an example of Panetta's detailed workmanship and penchant for elaborate settings. The backings and clips are made of lustrous silver-toned metal, possibly the rhodium plating that recalled the precious platinum Panetta had once worked in his native Italy and favored for crafting the look of fine jewelry. Overall an eye-catching yet understated design that would provide the perfect accessory for an elegant outfit. Produced in limited quantities, Panetta jewelry is increasingly rare and highly sought after among fashion connoisseurs and collectors alike.

Excellent condition. All stones appear intact. Slight surface wear on metal.

Panetta (New York, NY)
