A nice pair of vintage Sputnik earrings set with citrines. This style was popularized by H. Stern in the 1950s as a way to show of the companys unparalleled access to the worlds finest colored gemstones. The design eventually became known as Sputnik because of the perceived resemblance to the Soviet satellite active during the early years of the space race. Generally, Sputnik pieces were set with multi-colored stones, but occasionally a piece turns up set only with one stone, as in this case. The citrines have medium-dark, strongly saturated yellowish-orange color that contrasts beautifully with the more yellowish color of the gold mountings. Marked 14K. Origin: America, ca. 1960. Condition: excellent. Weight: 9.5 grams. Approximate Total Gemstone Weight: 9.92 carats.
