1940s Rhinestone Earrings~ Before and After

I found these earrings at a nice estate sale in Dallas a few months ago.  They were really lovely, and in pretty good condition.  So of course I couldn't resist them!

As you can see in the photo above, they just needed to be cleaned up a little. Some of the glue that held the rhinestone in place had yellowed over the years.  I also went ahead and switched out the clips for silver ear wires instead. 

The changes were subtle, as they should be.  Just a little TLC and a slight update.
