Not for Sale

Vintage rhinestone ear wraps

Okay, I know what you're thinking. What's the point? They're not for sale...


Well, here's how it went down. At first, I fully intended to list these babies on my shop. But, during the googling process, I learned that these vintage ear wraps are actually pretty rare. They were likely made by DeLizza & Elster in the 1950s, and the few pairs I've been able to find online sold for $100 to $300! There are even entire books dedicated to these pieces. So, that, combined with the fact that they are family heirlooms (...from my family), means I'll be keeping them...and praying for the hipster power to wear them someday. 


But, hey, I had a freak accident and pulled a muscle taking these photos, so they are going on the internet somewhere!
