Condition Report:

Very Good - A couple of tiny areas of rubbing and darkening to the surface of the metal. This is consistent with age and use and does not detract from the overall appeal of the earrings.

The Details...

These drop earrings are constructed from chrome. They are each detailed at the top and bottom with a bezel set, round, multi-faceted, amethyst coloured rhinestone. The earrings fasten with a screw-back mechanism and measure 3cm x 0.5cm.

A Short History...

During the 1920s and early 1930s, jewellery was influenced by the dawn of a new era. There was a push for all things modern after the shock of the First World War - people wanted to be cleansed of the old and celebrate the new. In the world of design a pure, hard-edged style was craved. This was evident in Bauhaus architecture, cubist art and the dropped-waist, linear-cut silhouette of the Flapper Girl. Jewellery designers looked to celebrate a burgeoning, bright industrial future in their work, creating pieces that looked almost mechanical with their sharp shapes and chrome coloured highlights. These earrings are certainly a-typical of Art Deco jewellery design during the period - their bold geometry, detailed with bright rhinestones for a new feminine look and movement. 

Wear it With...

These earrings work beautifully with casual looks. Pair them with a gray marl jumper and cords for weekend chic.
