Circa 1940's beautiful PENNINO lariat pendant necklace and clip earrings set. Rhodium-plated base metal. Crystal clear stones. The necklace is diamante pave and baguette rhinestones that emulate their real counterpart (you'd be hard pressed to distinguish any difference). Lariat styling with 3-tiered baguette "bell" pendants topped with pave rhinestones. Fold-over clasp also has rhinestone detail. The clip earrings emulate the pendant design of the necklace. The necklace measures about 15" in length . Central double pendant elements measures 3 1/4"L by 1" (longest pendant). The clip earrings measure a little over 2"L by 3/4" at widest. Earrings are signed PENNINO. Pennino Brothers Jewelry was a United States jeweller founded by Oreste, Frank and Jack Pennino in 1926 and based in New York City. It designed and manufactured costume jewelry using rhinestones set in gold plate, sterling, vermeil or rhodium-plated base metal. Jewelry bearing the Pennino mark are uncommon and well loved by collectors. The line stressed the "real look" in jewelry with elegant styles and floral motifs. Production ceased sometime in the early 1960's. Many of these pieces were made by Italian immigrants, such as Adrian Scannavino and Benedetto Panetta. The designs were traditional and classic.
