Flapper Finery: Onyx Pearl Pendant Earrings
Let's go back to the days of short bobbed hair and frenetic dancing in tight sheaths with lines of fringe wildly gesticulating a dance all of its own. When earrings were long and lean and moved to the staccato beat of syncopated times and shaking shimmies.
The perfect accessory was a pair of long long earrings with three articulated elements bobbing and tottling with every step. From a cultured pearl surmount to narrow open triangles of 15k yellow gold sharing another cultured pearl to suspend a lean torpedo of gold and black as ink onyx. Move forward to today and these chic accessories look as if they we produced from an up and coming designer.
Accompanying the swinging earrings is an antique box, possibly box of original issue with “Stewart Dawson & Company Limited, Regent Street, W” imprinted in gold on the silk interior top of the box.
Date: Circa 1925.
Measurements: 2-7/8 inches (7.3 cm) in length including ear wire by 1/4 of an inch (0.8 cm) in width. Weight of 4.7 grams (3.0 dwt) for the pair.
Condition: Excellent; later modern ear wires replace screw back fittings.
