Following the very popular late 1930s style we see the exuberant jewels of the 1940s. These gems have a style of their own and were meant to dazzle along with the very classy and bold designs of evening wear. These jewels were referred to as "cocktail" jewelry.
If we were to study the history of the 1940s with its wartime atmosphere and economic, social and political changes,we would see the influence on these spectacular designs. Hollywood played a role, as well, when woman's fashion followed the styles of Hollywood's femme fatales.
This pair of stunning earrings epitomize the three dimensional forms of the 1940s. Set in 14k gold are fine emerald cut aquamarines enhanced by four lovely pink rubies on each. The clip style closures were popular as well. The clips are marked 14k. Each earring measures 1 inch in length and are 3/4 inch at the widest point.
Excellent condition and beautifully wearable.
