The Details...

These wonderful earrings are constructed from silver. They feature a geometric drop design detailed with small, round, clear paste stones and small, square-cut, black paste stones. The lower half of each earring is attached to the top half of each earring with a tiny hinge mechanism, so that it moves indepenently. The earrings fasten to the ear with a screw-back mechanism. They measure 5cm x 1.25cm. The earrings are stamped and signed - the reverse of one screw is marked 'SILVER' and the reverse of both earrings is marked '935'. Each earring reverse also features 'KP' for Knoll and Pregizer. 

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, encrusted with bright Zebra striped pastes for a new feminine look and movement. 

Wear it With...

These earrings are perfect for evening wear or a special occasion. They would look beautiful with a little black dress, but equally chic with a bridal gown.
