HISTORY

 

After World War II and with the prospect of peace, prosperity and security all aspects of popular culture changed. Industry and economic growth gave rise to rapidly increasing wealth amongst the middle and upper classes and they wanted to display their prosperity by wearing showy and glamorous jewellery. It was the new consumer driven society.

 

The trend for matching pieces or parures became very popular comprising suites of bracelets, brooches, earrings, necklaces and rings. Animals, stars, butterflies, bees, leaves, flowers and snowflake designs were fashioned into sparkling gemstone pieces using faux and real stones. The large jewellery houses followed these trends.

 

MEASUREMENTS

The earrings measure 4.4cm / 1.7" in height and 1.2cm / 0.4" in width.
