HARMONY OF DESIGN, FORM AND COLOR
From my personal collection- These unique, striking and timeless earrings by the famous fashion icon, Hubert de Givenchy, are a rare find.
The definition of a free form as “An object having or being an irregular or asymmetrical shape or design” perfectly describes their elegant design.
Moreover, the harmony of the purple and vibrant green colored large, rhomboid form, faceted thermoset 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 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, emerald-cut transparent lavender and green Lucite cabochons. The earrings are substantial in size but the materials used to craft them make them very light, very comfortable and easy on the ear. 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.

VINTAGE AND CONDITION: Purchased in 1988 in the Givenchy boutique in Paris, the earrings were lovingly and gently worn over the years. However, they are in a pristine vintage condition, with no damage or wear on the metal or the cabochons. They were carefully stored in a lined drawer of a jewelry armoire and have not been worn in over 15 years. The earrings miss the original packaging (pouch, brand box and tags) and will be shipped, with new ear-protective cushions, in an elegant jewelry gift box.
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.
