Mings Of Honolulu Bamboo Leaf Vintage Akoya Saltwater Cultured Pearl Pierced Earrings- Sterling Silver
This is a well made set of vintage Ming's of Honolulu sterling silver & Japanese akoya saltwater cultured pearl earrings.
The pearls measure 5.00-5.75mm and have great luster and rosy pink overtones. They are a cream/white color and very slightly baroque.
They are stamped "S/S" for sterling silver and "MINGS" of Ming's of Honolulu, a designer popular in Hawaii during the mid-century that went out of business in the 1990's. The backs are newer solid sterling butterfly backs, the earrings appear to have been converted from screwbacks. Wonderful details on the leaves. Total drop is 1 inch.
All pearls are truly vintage and have only been lightly cleaned.
