Vintage turbo shell earrings. Natural shells and 14k gold with turquoise-gems.

Measurements: Weight is 11.9 grams.

Description : The use of natural shells fascinated many jewelry designers since time immemorial. While nature cannot be improved upon, the clever use of gold mounts with small gem accents has made these Turbo Shell earrings an ongoing rage for decades and women are still looking for vintage or estate examples.
This pair is very classic: beautiful mother of pearl nacre to the twisting shells with a glowing sheen. They are wrapped in a gold wires that accentuate the twists and turns. Turquoise terminals at either end. The turquoise is not only beautiful in and of itself, but serves to remind us of the sea, from where the shells came.
Chic and elegant, a classic for your collection.

Marks and Metal: Marked MAZ and 14k under each earring.

Age: we do not know the exact age of this pair of earrings. They have been made by Seaman Shepps, Trianon and Maz since the late 1940's and it is difficult to distinguish between earlier or later examples.

Condition: Good with negligible wear commensurate with age. Please see enlarged pictures and don't hesitate to ask questions which we will do our best to answer.
