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 its own. When earrings were long and lean and moved to the staccato beat of syncopated times and shaking shimmies.
The perfect accessory of the 1920’s was a pair of attenuated, long earrings to accentuate the structed cropped hairdos of the day.
From a line of cultured white pearls to narrow open triangles of 15k yellow gold and inky onyx, these drippy earrings are sensuous and refined. 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.
