Definition-Free Form : Having or being an irregular or asymmetrical shape or design
From my personal collection- If you have had an opportunity to read through the various descriptions of jewelry selections offered in our store, you would realize that most of the items are from my personal collection and that even though many pieces were purchased to accessorize a specific outfit, they have ended in adorning many other of my wardrobe ensembles.
These unique, striking and timeless, Hubert de Givenchy, clip-on earrings were just such a purchase. The definition of a free form as “An object having or being an irregular or asymmetrical shape or design” perfectly describes these elegant and stunning earrings. Moreover, the harmony of the lavender and vibrant green colored large, rhomboid form, faceted thermo-set Lucite cabochons, combined with a superb and sculptured, premier 18 Kt. gold-plate metal setting, makes them a veritable, wearable art, fashion accessory. The earrings are rhomboid in form and are set in an open work metal base. The textured, gleaming and open surface of the base has a slightly fluted and carved design which is set with two large and unusual, rhombus shaped transparent lavender and green Lucite cabochons. The earrings are substantial in size and the use of Lucite cabochons rather than glass ones significantly reduces their weight and makes them very comfortable and easy to wear. The clips have the GIVENCHY PARIS NEW YORK signature. They are truly a collector’s item and would add a considerable glam to many an outfit.
About Givenchy: Having had established his label in 1952, the name of Givenchy became synonymous with Parisian chic. His modern, ladylike, designs from most of Audrey Hepburn’s films had not only popularized his brand but had established him as internationally renown, premier designers of elegant haute-couture. His close association with such noted designers as Balanciaga had introduced many fashion innovations such as shorter hem-lines , less structured clothing designs and bold and more contemporary fashion accessories. His label was taken over by the conglomerate of Luis Vuitton in 1989. Upon Hubert de Givenchy’s retirement, whose last collection was shown in 1995, such famous designers as John Galliano and Alexander McQueen, among others, succeeded him as head designers of the Givenchy label.
