KNOWN FOR HIS ORIGINAL STONE SETS AND ONE OF A KIND JEWELRY, OSCAR BETZ IS MOST FAMOUS FOR PERFECTING THE FEATHERWEIGHT, SOUTHWEST CHANDELIER EARRING. 

Despite their large scale, Betz’ earrings are easy to wear and perfectly balanced, and always set with a beautiful mix of stones. Prolific in the ’70s and ’80s, Oscar’s pieces are now actively sought out and purchased by Hollywood celebrities including Liz Taylor, 7th Ave. designers including Ralph Lauren, as well as collectors of fine Southwest jewelry. His work remains in high demand today.  

These chandelier earrings are an edgy angular edition of Betz’ most popular design. Crafted in turquoise, each stone is hand cut and set by the artisan. Hinged for light movement, these statement earrings have post back closures.
