Jewel of the day: Vega Maddox Jadeite, Amethyst and Enamel Earrings

Vega Maddox was based in LA in the 60s and 70s, and did ornate, over the top jewellery. I’m fortunate to have one of her necklaces and a pair of earrings. Those are bit too heavy for me to actually wear comfortably but I just love looking at them.

These earrings are very much in the Maddox style. Available from Earthly Adornments, they are “sterling silver vermeil with enamel, amethyst and jadeite. 2-3/4 x 1-1/2 inches. The jadeite and amethyst stones are bezel-set and surrounded the enamel. The earrings have 14k gold posts. Each earring weighs 14.3 grams.”

These were a custom made commissioned piece by the former owner. Maddox’s jewelry is hard to find and in demand, and these are one of a kind. They sell for USD$550.
