A Short History...

1980s style can be effectively explained by the term 'power dressing'. Womenswear was tailored to challenge notions of who was 'boss' and costume jewellery was created to reflect fashion that showed control. Pieces, such as this necklace, were bold and flashy. Adornment in the eighties was a vocabulary for saying 'I'm in charge'. 

Wear it With...

Pair this necklace with a minimal black jumpsuit and a single-strap heel for a sophisticated evening look.
