Long gilt metal and turquoise glass bead fringed earrings, Christian Dior, 1968

About

These fringed drop earrings from Christian Dior are a Summery and stylish addition to any wardrobe. With a design of abstracted gilt floral motifs on the top half of the earrings, set with round turquoise glass beads, the bottom half drops down in five separate gilt ball and turquoise bead 'cascades', tipped with a gilt metal finding. With the quality always associated with Henkel and Grosse, these are light to wear and perfect for the summer months. Christian Dior was born into a wealthy family in 1905, being raised in the Normandy seaside town of Granville. Working first for Robert Piguet and then for Lucien Lelong as a head designer, during the war years, he then opened his own couture house. His now highly celebrated and iconic first collection ‘Corolle’ caused a sensation, and is now known by its more famous name ‘New Look’. From the very beginning in 1947, jewellery played a very prominent part in his collections, initially recalling the pomp and grandeur of the 18th century , its femininity and glamour, and later moving into extravagant experiments with Austrian stones and paste, throughout the late 1950s until the 1970s.
