Very Good - A little rubbing to the plated reverse of the earrings. This is not visible when worn and does not detract from the appeal of these earrings.

A Short History...

These earrings are an excellent example of Christian Dior's dazzling, yet wearable, jewellery from the 1980s. They are a must for fans of the French design house too due to their incorporation of the 'cannage' design. Indeed, 'cannage' was the name given to the wickerwork on the Napoleon II style gilded chairs that Mr Dior invited guests to sit upon during his Haute Couture fashion shows. These chairs became a key symbol of Dior's timeless elegance and the 'cannage' motif has been incorporated in many of the houses' designs - handbags, makeup and, as seen here, jewellery. Dior has recently introduced the 'cannage' work into its fine jewellery collections designed by Victoire de Castellane. These earrings present an affordable opportunity to wear such iconic design. 

Wear it With...

These earrings are a wardrobe essential - they will enable you to add Dior's elegance and cool to any look. Pair them with a softly tailored trouser suit by day for work and wear them with a cocktail dress in neutral tones for evening.
