Margaret DePatta

Pair of Eyes earrings
USA, c. 1949
sterling silver, blue moonstone
¾ w in (2 cm)

In order to have an individual custom jewelry design created by DePatta, clients would fill out a personal questionnaire of likes and interests in order to relate the design to the owner's lifestyle. This unique "Pair of Eyes" earrings was a custom-made design to indicate the owner's own and often commented-on twinkling blue eyes. When worn on each ear, they become a second pair of eyes. Signed and stamped by DePatta.

estimate: $4,000–5,000
