Navy Goldfluss Earrings
The royal blue and goldstone vintage glass octagons in these lovely art deco style earrings are teeny tiny buttons.
Goldstone glass, or Goldfluss in German, was invented by the Venetians in the seventeenth century. It’s manufactured by heating silica and copper oxide until metallic crystals form.
The production process was perfected by twentieth-century Czech and German glass artisans. Sadly, this trade is uncommon today and goldstone glass is, therefore, becoming harder and harder to find.
In these earrings:
- Small vintage blue and goldfluss glass octagon button, made Western Germany circa 1950s
- Three midnight blue crystals
- Pronged brass stampings made today in vintage dies in the USA
- Nickel-free and lead-free brass kidney wire closures
- Hangs 1 ⅜”
