Condition Report:

Very Good - A tiny element of scratching to the surface of one faux pearl. This is only visible upon really close inspection use and does not detract from the overall appeal of the piece.

The Details...

A stylish design from Schreiber and Hiller - these earrings are Rhodium Plated. The design is channel-set with round, multi-faceted, clear, paste stones. Suspended from each earring are two, teardrop shaped faux pearls, detailed with Rhodium Plated, floral inspired caps. The earrings are clip on and they measure 3.5cm x 2cm. 

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 rhinestones for a new feminine look and movement.
