Vintage Copper Statement Earrings “Rhythm Pattern” signed by Renoir of CA

RENOIR OF CALIFORNIA: Founded in 1946 by Jerry Fels, Renoir of California produced copper jewelry until about 1964 from its Santa Monica, California workshop. Designed by Fels and popularized for its strong geometric, abstract, modernist designs, Renoir pieces are hand-hammered and, some, enameled. Collectors cherish this American-made vintage jewelry for its unique combination of mid-century style and artisanal quality. Lana Turner and Betty Davis were just some of the celebrities that wore Renoir.

THESE EARRINGS: This is a pair of strongly geometric copper clip-on statement earrings. The pattern is called “rhythm” by Renoir and features three similarly shaped loops of copper gathered by a band of the same material. The combination of the strong geometric design and the bright copper shine is quite eye catching. Both earrings are signed Renoir. The height of each is 1 ½” and the width is 7/8”. The pair weighs .49 oz.

CONDITION: These earrings were my mother’s. There are no obvious signs that she ever wore them and they are in excellent condition.
