Condition Report:

Very Good - Slight rubbing to the reverse of a couple of the pearls. This is barely visible and consistent with age and use. It does not detract from the overall appeal of the piece.

The Details...

These earrings are made from gold plated metal. They are a baroque style detailed with faux pearls, brown velvet hearts and oval, bezel set, multi-faceted lilac rhinestones. The earrings are also signed. On the reverse of each earring, there is an oval, gold tone panel stamped with 'CL' in script and 'CHRISTIAN LACROIX Made in France'.  These earrings measure 6.5cm x 3cm.

All of our clip earrings are provided with removable pads for extra comfort.

A Short History...

These earrings are a perfect example of Christian Lacroix's beautiful baroque detailing and love of mixing textures. In the early Nineties, Lacroix was enjoying a time of great popularity. His work provided an antithesis to the minimalism of designers like Calvin Klien. Opulence lovers could visit his stores to splurge on jewellery that reflected their style. It is doubtless that this pair of earrings would have made their way to the checkout with a daring fashionista.

Wear it With...

Pair these earrings with black jeans and a black blazer with gold buttons for a chic statement.
