EARCLIPS - PERIDOT AND CITRINE
This pair of clip-on earrings was made by the German company of Ernst Leyser, probably in the 1960s. Leyser, founded in 1913, are mainly dealers in loose gem-stones, but like many such dealers, had a certain amount of jewellery made to their designs and incorporating their gem-stones. These very wearable every-day earrings are set with oval peridots and amber-colour citrines, mounted in 14ct, with clip fittings. A post can be added for pierced ears.
