A Short History...

These earrings are emblematic of the 'Cocktail Style' of costume jewellery being produced and worn during the late 1940s and Early 1950s. In the post-war world there was a craze for costume jewellery that was ostentatious and glitzy; featuring stones in outlandish sizes and showy colourways. This form of jewellery was referred to as 'cocktail' because it was commonly worn to a way of gathering together that was becoming increasingly popular - the cocktail party. 

Wear it With...

These earrings would be a captivating accompaniment to a bridal gown. After 'the big day', pair them with your evening wear for years to come  - a memento of your marriage that can be worn ever after.
