Akoya Pearl Earrings Gump's Midcentury

$1,299Asking Price

About

These early 1950s earrings from Gump's of San Francisco were hand-crafted in Japan from silver and cultured Akoya pearls. Created as figural floral sprays, each earring is anchored by a large 7mm pearl surrounded by six 5mm pearls on silver "stems." The silver has been hand-chiseled to create texture on the silver "leaves." Although there is no maker's mark on the earrings, Mikimoto did create unsigned pearl jewelry for Gump's and given the high-quality of the pearls and the workmanship, it's likely they created this pair as well. They are hallmarked for silver and Japan along with the patent number for the earring closure mechanism. These classic, elegant earrings are still relevant today. Sculptural and expressive, the bright white silver was the perfect metal choice to compliment the silvery-pink saltwater pearls. The earrings ship in a silk-covered and embroidered Gump's box.
