These fun vintage 1930s Wedgwood blue jasperware earrings depict Cupid and Apollo and set in sterling silver. Apollo is the god of music, truth, prophecy, healing, sun, light, plague, and poetry. The screw-back earrings have a halo of twisted sterling surrounding the oval cameos, which frame them very nicely. Wedgwood is always collectible and would make a great addition to a cameo or Wedgwood collection!
The earrings are in very good vintage condition with typical signs of wear on the metal and stone surface. The screw-back posts are not bent and fully functional. The bezel set jasperware is secure in the mounting and does not wiggle. The back of the posts are stamped “Sterling,” and the jasperware appears to be hand-cut, so they are not perfectly oval. There are two pencil marks on the backs of each earring, which could be erased.
The earrings measure 1″ tall and 3/4″ wide.
Josiah Wedgwood began developed jasperware in the 1770s and is considered a type of pottery. A defining characteristic of jasperware is the unglazed biscuit or matte finish on the stone, with light blue being the most common color known as Wedgwood Blue.
