Jewelled gilt metal and coloured paste 'starfish' earrings, Florenza, 1960s

About

Lovely jewelled earrings in soft colours and soft toned gilt metal, in the form of a stylised 'starfish', from Florenza, from the 1960s. As you might not expect, Florenza costume jewellery was not named as an homage to Florence, Italy. Instead, it gets its name from Florence, the wife of Dan Kasoff, who founded Florenza in 1948, continuing until 1981, when the company was forced to close. Specializing in gold-plated metal jewellery in Victorian revival and renaissance styles, Florenza designed its own pieces as well as manufactured fashion jewellery for others, from Coro to Weiss.. While flower shapes such as tulips and fuchsias graced many Florenza demi-parures, Kasoff and his designers were also inspired by stars, some referencing the natural world, others taken from history.
