This beautiful piece looks new and has little to no wear. It was bought at an estate sale and comes in original packaging, complete with vintage box from Birk's.
The earrings are clip-on, and has the D'orlan mark on the back. It is plated in 22k gold, featuring minimastic floral design with dazzling rhinestones on the centre of the flower. As was custom in the 80's, the earrings are gold, bold and shiny!
This is a rare piece that I have yet to find availale online so it will be a great addition to the avid collector.
