Good - A little wear to the surface of the faux pearls consistent with age and use. This does not detract from the overall appeal of the earrings and is only visible upon very close inspection.

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 and Miriam Haskell, used faux pearls prolifically and many unsigned pieces were made using them to emulate their high end designs. 

Wear it With...
