The Details...

These silver tone earrings feature two hoops of rhinestones intertwined. One hoop is made up of small, round, clear rhinestones and the other is detailed with small, round, aquamarine rhinestones. All of the stones are faceted and claw set. The earrings measure 4cm x 2cm. They are stamped 'Made in Austria' on the reverse of one screw-back. 

A Short History...

These earrings are emblematic of the 'Cocktail Style' of costume jewellery being produced and worn during the 1950s and 1960s. 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. 

Wear it With...

These earrings would be a striking accompaniment to a black tuxedo.
