Knoll & Pregizer KP Earrings Reproduction
The SIL in the oval cartouche was added to the mold. The 925 KP marks are from the original earrings from which the mold was made.  Modern cut rhinestones are sloppily GLUED into the settings and don't even fit the cups properly. Many times you will see the traces of glue under a loupe. The originals would have been hand bead or bezel set like real diamonds. The KP punch is not crisp because who knows how many pairs of these have been spit out from the same mold over the years. Despite the bad lighting, mine show the patina of ten years worth of age. That in itself is a problem because as these repros age, they look more authentically old,especially if you don't know what to look for. The ones I have seen recently are bright and shiny and new.
