Vintage Turquoise Drop Earrings - Paris Flea Market FindDesigner: Paris Flea Market
I curated these vintage earrings from a young French woman, Alice, who works for her mom in the Marche aux Puce Saint-Ouen in Paris. Her mom has been curating vintage jewelry for over 40 years and had an AMAZING selection of unique and special pieces from a variety of decades. She has been doing this for so long that people now seek her out to sell their best pieces. I spent several hours in the tiny stall just trying on pieces and having Alice show me some of the special acquisitions in their back stock. I picked only 3 pieces for the shop as a starting point - my favorites. This magnificent pair is one of them!
- 4" L x 2" W
- Each earring weighs about .8 ounces
- Turquoise, glass paste. Metal is “pomponne” which Alice described as a mix of bronze/silver/gold
- Post back
- Made in Italy (stamped on back) - circa 80s
