Condition Report:

Very Good - Some wear to the gilt metal findings consistent with age and use. This is only visible upon close inspection and does not detract from the overall appeal of the earrings.

The Details...

These earrings feature a gilt metal panel, suspended from which are chains detailed with faux pearls, pale blue and pale pink glass beads and gilt metal beads. The chains hang together so that the beads and pearls form clusters. The earrings are signed - the reverse of each earring is engraved with 'Coro' in script lettering, as is the reverse of each screw. The earrings measure 3cm x 2.5cm each. 

All of our clip on earrings are supplied with removable pads for extra comfort.

A Short History...

The popularity of the use of faux pearls within costume jewellery is undeniable. Between the 1920s and 1960s, they were enjoying a heyday, as they made pieces more affordable than rhinestone examples and were acceptable for daywear too. Famous costume jewellery brands, such as Chanel, Miriam Haskell and Coro, used faux pearls prolifically and many unsigned pieces were made using them to emulate their high end designs. 

Wear it With...

The ivory tones in the faux pearls of these earrings make them the perfect bridal accessory. Pair them with a liquid satin 1940s style gown.
