    Condition Report:

    Very Good - Some rubbing to the plating at the centre of the cross design. This is only apparent upon very close inspection and does not detract from the appeal of the earrings.

    The Details...

    These gold plated earrings feature a cross design. They are each detailed with four, claw set, multi-faceted, round, blue rhinestones. The earrings are clip on. The reverse of one earring reveals an oval plaque stamped with 'CHRISTIAN DIOR BY MITCHEL MAER'.  Each earring measures 2.5cm x 2.5cm.

    All of our clips come with removable pads for extra comfort, should you require it. 

    A Short History...

    These earrings can be dated to the 1950s, as the London based designer Mitchel Maer produced jewellery for the House of Dior between 1952 and 1956. His bold rhinestone creations for the house were popular, as they particularly complimented the couture evening wear designed by Dior during the decade. Today, they are most collectable because they demonstrate Maer's eye for interesting design. 

    Wear it With...

    The rhinestones in these earrings sparkle so brightly that they are the perfect formal wear accompaniment. They would be an exquisite and special 'something blue' to particularly wear on a wedding day.

    The jewellery within the Gemma Redmond Vintage collection has survived to this day because it has been well cared for throughout its lifetime. It is important to continue to care for the jewellery that you buy from us to ensure its continued preservation. Here are some suggestions:

    - Be sure to store your jewellery within the boxes that we provide to ensure that it is protected. This is especially important when travelling with your pieces.

    - Try not to get perfume or hairspray on your items. These liquids can damage the materials that our jewellery is made from.

    - Try not to drop your jewellery or catch your jewellery against hard surfaces. If this happens over time, the findings and fixings can loosen and wear.

    - Try not to get your jewellery wet. Some costume jewellery manufacturers utilised water soluble glue in the making of their pieces. Getting your jewellery wet could cause rhinestones and other details to fall away over time.

    - If you wish to clean your jewellery, use a soft polishing cloth or a soft brush.
