Condition Report:

Good - Some minor oxidisation to the hooks attaching the pearls to earrings and a small scuff mark to one pearl. This is only visible upon very close inspection and does not detract from the overall appeal of the piece.

A Short History...

The popularity of the use of faux pearls within costume jewellery is undeniable. Between the 1920s and 1960s, they were enjoying a heyday, as they made pieces more affordable than rhinestone examples and were acceptable for daywear too. Famous costume jewellery brands, such as Chanel, Miriam Haskell and Schreiner, used faux pearls prolifically and many unsigned pieces were made using them to emulate their high end designs. 

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.
