A Short History...

The jewellery of the French Belle Époque period can be exemplified by an allusion to the natural world. These earrings are particularly representative of this aesthetic phase, which began in the 1880s and started to wane in the 1900s/1910s. They were reputedly once owned by opera singer, Dianette Alvina, who would have worn these earrings for her performances in the early 1900s. These earrings are a great example of the theatre jewellery created for performers during the Victorian and Edwardian eras - with sparkling rhinestones, moveable parts and dramatic sizing they were perfect for being noticed on the stage of a theatre filled to the brim.
