This classic pair of 1980s gold plated Panetta earrings feature faux glass cabochon stones, sapphires, emeralds, rubies and amethysts. They are accentuated by clear faceted diamantés. These glamorous clip on earrings measure diameter 2.4cm and depth 8mm. They have some minor wear to the gold plating.
Beneditto Panetta emigrated from Naples, Italy in 1901 and after working for Trifari and Pennino set up his own company in New York in 1945. He made replicas of fine jewellery and the slogan of the company was 'if it didn't look 'real', it went back to the drawing board'. Jewellery was produced using the finest quality materials and limited production runs and was therefore always expensive. The company was sold in the 1980's and closed in 1995.
