Large Vintage Industrialist Pierced Hoop Earrings Yellow Gold Plate – Mid Century Modernist – This is pair of vintage 1970s to 1980s, pierced post, hoop earrings with mid century modernist industrialist machinist design. They are very heavily gold plated and are likely vintage Goldette jewelry. As many Goldette collectors know, the gold plating on Goldette jewelry was so heavily applied that oftentimes the marking is either very faint or not found because it lies underneath the gold. These earrings were part of an estate of an old jeweler who manufactured and distributed jewelry for Goldette, Florenza, Hollycraft and many other costume houses during the 1970s to 1990s. They were only ever used for display and are in original, excellent condition having only a NY mark inside each earrings. All gold is intact and there are no scratches, dents, dings etc….No damage. No repair. They are also very heavy and showy! Size across each earring hoop is just over 1″. Height north to south is 1.25″. The outside of the earrings are graduated from 1/16″ at the very end tips to 7/16″ wide across the bottoms. Weight is 19.6 grams for both. This is a lovely, showy pair of earrings for your vintage jewelry collection. Hard to find these in this condition and weight.
