Van Cleef & Arpels Angel Skin Coral Clip Earrings


Composed of coral beads and 18K gold, these clip earrings were created in the 1960s by Van Cleef & Arpels. Each omega clip back earring is designed as an abstract 18K gold cluster of heavily textured gold petals or leaves, highlighted by angel skin coral bead berries. Designed to hug the face and complement the skin with their soft pastel tones, these high style, beautifully made earrings exemplify the style, craftsmanship, and unaffected naturalism of the 1960s.
