Turquoise ruby enamel and filigree yellow gold fan-shaped earrings circa 1950. *
ABOUT THIS ITEM: #E-DJ81I. Scroll down for specifications. Fantastic and whimsical, these festive fan earrings are a throwback to the good old days spanning through the mid-20th century. The color play between the blue shades of the turquoise and the reddish tones of the rubies and enamel work is beyond eye-catching. Note that this is what is commonly referred to as left-and-right earrings. That gives you a choice of wearing them in two different ways. With the fans facing in the direction of the face or away from it. You decide. We think that they look best with the fans facing into the face. Modest in size and big on looks, the post-backs make them easy and comfortable to wear all day long if you wish.
