Condition Report:

Very Good - A little wear to the metal reverse of one earring clip. This is not visible when the earrings are worn and does not detract from their appeal.

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...

Dramatic and sparkling, these earrings are perfect for pairing with a bridal gown.
