Condition Report:

Very Good - Some rubbing to the metal reverse of the earrings. However, this is not visible when worn and does not detract from the overall appeal of the earrings.

The Details...

These earrings are a circular shape. They are detailed in their entirety with pink, brown and marbled turquoise round glass beads. The earrings are also detailed with small pink glass rondelle beads woven in strands between the larger beads to create a quilted effect. All of the beads are hand-wired to a brass framework. The earrings are signed, featuring the Coppola e Toppo company's signature star design in the reverse of each clip and stamped on the reverse of both earrings with 'MADE IN ITALY BY Coppola e Toppo. The earrings are 2.25cm in diameter.

All of our clip earrings are provided with removable pads for extra comfort.

A Short History...

Coppola e Toppo pieces are some of the most sought after by collectors of vintage costume jewellery. It is certainly easy to see why - the craftsmanship, eye for detail and design technique empolyed in the production of their jewellery is outstanding. Sister and brother, Lyda Toppo and Bruno Coppola founded the business in 1946. Their success was sealed when design houses Dior, Schiaparelli and Balenciaga commissioned the pair to produce pieces for them. Also, their home town of Milan was increasing its status as a fashion capital and this saw Coppola e Toppo rise to revered heights in fashion circles.
