Condition Report:

Very Good - A small chip to the gold plating on one panel on the reverse of the necklace and a small amount of rubbing to the plating on the necklace hinges. These signs of wear are only visible upon close inspection and do not detract from the appeal of the piece.

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 chunky knitwear and biker boots.
