Earrings

Alongside cultural changes of the Art Deco period, it became fashionable for women’s hair to be cut short; showcasing drop earrings to full effect as they fell into the nape of the neck.

Drop earrings were worn day and night and came in all shapes, sizes and colour combinations and as was de rigueur, the bolder and bigger the better. The increasing size-weight of Art Deco designs required a clip to hold them in place; therefore clip earrings became fashionable from the 1930s onwards.

The sophisticated use of platinum settings allowed designers to engineer drops that amazed and enticed with cascades of diamonds and stones that were truly beautiful.
