Sparkling Buttercups - Vintage Silver Crystal Stud Earrings.  These lovely earrings are crafted from a silver metal. Featuring 2 round cut faceted crystals, and Vintage styling.  The crystal rhinestones are expertly claw-set in a buttercup setting, which delicately and securely hold the sparkling rhinestones. The earrings are for pierced ears, featuring posts and secure butterfly backs. These Vintage earrings are classic, and versatile. So pretty!

Rhinestones which are also known as diamantes or paste date back as far as the thirteenth century where they were first made from Czechoslovakian or Bohemian hand blown glass. The term rhinestone came along later, when rock crystals were discovered in and around the shores of the river Rhine in Austria.

A rhinestone, paste or diamante is a diamond simulant originally made from rock crystal but since the 19th century from crystal glass or polymers such as acrylic.
