Swarovski Crystal Downton Abbey Style | Earrings
These crystals were widely used during the period presented in "Downton Abbey" They were already being produced in Austria in the Swarovski Factory. The long bicones in this particular pair are called "Mink" and have not been manufactured since about the 1940s. I used to have a working partner, Andrew Romanoff. We manufactured a whole line of crystal earrings and they spread across the USA thanks to 16 Reps int he field and about 300 accounts. Those were the days. Anyway, I still make them occasionally and here is a pair!
