The Details...

These earrings are clip on. They are a hoop design constructed from gold vermeil detailed with small, round, clear rhinestones and square cut, ruby red rhinestones. Unusually, they feature rhinestones on the inside of the hoop too, so that they look wonderful from all angles. The earrings measure 2cm in diameter.

A Short History...

These earrings are emblematic of the 'Cocktail Style' of costume jewellery being produced and worn during the late 1940s and Early 1950s. In the post-war world there was a craze for costume jewellery that was ostentatious and glitzy; featuring stones in outlandish sizes and showy colourways. This form of jewellery was referred to as 'cocktail' because it was commonly worn to a way of gathering together that was becoming increasingly popular - the cocktail party.
