Condition Report:

Good - Minor scratches to the surface of one or two faux pearls and oxidisation to some of the gilt metal. This 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 and Miriam Haskell, used faux pearls prolifically and many unsigned pieces were made using them to emulate their high end designs. 

Wear it With...

Wear this with a white, short sleeve blouse and a shiny accordion pleat skirt to add a traditional twist to an on trend look.
