Details

Vintage genuine Pre Ban ivory rose beads 1980, vintage amethyst purple Austrian crystal glass beads 1950,vintage gold plated bead caps

Exquisite Pre Ban ivory beads showcasing hand carved roses have been paired with vintage amethyst purple Austrian crystal from the 1950's! What could be more elegant and more perfect for a winter bride?!
Vintage gold plated bead caps from the 1940's, have been placed on either side of the ivory bead to add additional elegance and 14K gold beads sit top and bottom of this earring for the finishing touch!

These ivory beads measure a substantial 14mm (approximately 5/8" inch) and were personally purchased by me in Hong Kong in the early 1980's. The vintage faceted crystals are 8mm with lots of sparkle and a lovely shade of amethyst purple to contrast against the ivory bead.

Total length of these earrings is approximately 1 1/4" and they have been finished on gold plated french ear wires.

They will arrive in a little box all ready for gift giving.
?Shipping INCLUDES insurance within the U.S. ?
****************************************************************************************
"In 1989, the Parties to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora
( CITES ) banned the international trade in African elephant ivory. Such trade in Asian elephant ivory has been banned by CITES since 1975."
This quotation is from a report released by the Humane Society of the United States in October of 2002.

Many people sell ivory today and many state that it is
" pre ban" ivory. I feel as a seller on ArtFire , that it is my responsibility to let you know exactly what " pre ban ivory" means and also to assure you that any ivory beads I sell in my shop, were purchased before this ban. We have the documentation to prove this.

**PLEASE NOTE:
CITES banned the sale of ASIAN elephant ivory as early as 1975. Despite the fact that it was legal to trade in AFRICAN ivory until 1989 ( and our items were purchased in 1984 ) Customs officials seem to be currently prohibiting entry of ALL ivory products regardless of origin unless accompanied by an export license which validates acquisition prior to 1973.
****We regret that we cannot ship outside the U.S. for this reason***
