    The Details...

    These earrings are constructed from silver tone metal. They feature round and square cut, multi-faceted, colourless, claw set crystals. They are also detailed with a rectangular, faceted, black glass panel, which is also claw set. At the top of each earring is a colourless, pressed glass panel in a cloud-like form. This is claw set too. The earrings are clip on. The earrings measure 7cm x 2.5cm. 

    A Short History...

    Glass has been a prevalent feature of costume pieces since the invention of jewellery. An easily accessible material that can be formed into any shape. It was heavily used in 1920s and 1930s pieces, such as these earrings, because it could meet the need for affordable jewellery after the World War One and the Great Depression. It could also be pressed into the evocative geometric shapes we associate with Art Deco design.

    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.
