Alpaca abalone mother of pearl and black onyx clip on dangle earrings in silver color Mexico Alpacca metal. Pink tones mother-of-pearl flower and lovely blue iridescent abalone shell touches in leaves. Earrings measure about 2 1/8 inches in length, not counting the button clip. The leaf shaped earring is about 7/8 inch at the widest point. Both stamped Alpaca Mexico on the back. From an estate these lovely vintage earrings are in very nice gently used condition with minor scratches on the metal and some discolored spots or finish wear on the back of one earring. I gently polished them by hand and the buyer may want to polish them more. Often made in Mexico, Alpaca or Alpacca is an alloy substitute for silver and is usually made up mostly of about 55% copper, 20% nickel, 20% zinc, and 5% tin. It generally contains no elemental silver unless plated. See my other store items for a bracelet to go with these earrings. Great accessory for your jewelry collection, or wonderful gift for that special someone!
