Classically Elegant Silpada UPTOWN Zirconia & Sterling Silver Pierced Earrings

SILPADA DESIGNS: Silpada started out in 1993 as an idea by best friends Bonnie Kelly and Teresa Walsh to sell their silver jewelry designs at get-togethers. From its humble beginnings by stay-at-home moms, Silpada saw stunning success, becoming the world’s largest home party seller of sterling silver jewelry and providing a steady income for thousands of representatives across the country.

However, after facing negative party and recruiting trends since 2010, the Lenexa-based Silpada ended all sales operations in Canada and the US on July 31, 2016. On October 21 of the same year, Richline Group, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, announced that it had acquired select assets of Silpada Designs, including the “Silpada” brand name, its jewelry designs and all sterling silver and fashion jewelry inventory. Richline Group, the USA’s foremost manufacturer and marketer of fine jewelry brands also shared its plan to continue to produce and market the Silpada brand through new channels, focusing on Silpada’s sterling silver jewelry heritage.

THESE EARRINGS: This is a pair of classically elegant earrings, each with a very sparkly square faceted cubic zirconia stone set in a sterling silver filigree “cage” and fastened to a sterling silver French wire. It is very hard to see, but with a magnifying glass you can just make out the sterling silver 925 mark on each of the French wires. The earrings (Silpada pattern number W0975) appear on page 71E of the 2012-2013 Silpada catalogue, the last catalogue issued by the independent company. The drop length of each earring is 1” and the “cage” dimension is 3/8” x 3/8”.

CONDITION: These earrings were a gift to me by my family and never worn. I prefer earrings that lay against the ear rather than dangle from the ear. They are “like new” other than a bit of age-related patina.
