A Short History... 

The almost space age detailing in this earrings and brooch set would have made them an incredibly popular choice at the time of their manufacture. Fresh, futuristic aluminium and silver colouring was prevelant in 1960s jewellery design as designers and wearers alike were keen to reflect the trend for science fiction and the current state of the space race.  

Wear it With... 

Definately edgy in the Sixties, these pieces could still be considered to be a touch avante garde today. Why not add a dramatic touch to a minimal, silk, strapless wedding gown or a black, velvet, evening column.
