Multi Gem Cluster Earrings

  In the 1930’s , 1940’s and into the 1950’s, screw back earrings were the style.  Then came clip ons which exists even today and now for many years  pierced earrings became  the most popular style.  We think earrings play a very important part in an individual’s defining life style.  Earrings can say a great deal about the personality of the individual wearing them.  Here is an example of clip on earrings probably made in the late 20th century.  The black Onyx resin ovals support a wonderful cluster of semi precious gems including Turquoise, Tiger’s Eye, Carnelian, Blood Stone and Quartz to name a few.  We guarantee, they will look great on any ear!
