Large Sparkling Rhinestone Wingback Earrings
The Wingback earring design was patented by Judith McAnn in1944 for women who had trouble wearing other types of earrings. Designed so the "wing" fits in the ear above the lobe with the wire back behind the ear for support. These are an unusually lovely pair of earrings, with prong set navette and chaton rhinestones in bright silver tone metal. The stones show no discoloring and the metal shows the minimal wear on the backs one would expect for their age. This is a lovely pair of hard to find Wingback earrings! fun to wear, and a proud addition to any vintage collection!
