The earrings are moderate in size but don't weigh heavily on the ear.

Vendôme was formed in the late 1940s as a subsidiary of Coro, the American costume jewellery manufacturer.   The Vendôme line of jewellery was pitched at the high end of the costume jewellery market and was Coro's most expensive line.  Vendôme jewellery was designed to emulate French fashions of the time and was marketed to elite ladies of the time.  The company was known to use the best materials and the components were hand assembled.  Vendôme closed in 1979.

How do you rate the condition of a piece?

Excellent - No visible flaws to note but items may exhibit some signs of age related wear
Very Good - Some visible flaws which aren't considered to impair the wearability of the piece
Good - Some more notable flaws but the piece is still in collectible condition

All items are vintage and have lived a previous life, therefore signs of age related wear are to be expected. I do my best to bring attention to any faults in the description and by using the condition scale.

When will I receive my delivery?

We aim to send packages out the following business day after an order is received. All items will be carefully wrapped in a Gadelles box, finished with a ribbon and placed in a discreet bubble lined envelope, or small parcel box if the order contains multiple items.
