Here are poppies to remember.
Much like the actual bloom that symbolizes "remembrance", this pair of poppy earrings by Yves Saint Laurent has an enduring beauty that's hard to forget.
This pair has a retro style, and a color that mimics that of the real thing, poppy red. The vivid solid enameling is set on a shimmery gunmetal gray backdrop.
We did a quick search and found out that YSL created a number of poppy-themed jewelry and haute couture fashion during the 1980s. Our earrings, out of a local Dallas estate with a prodigious jewelry collection, is from that same era. It is on the larger end of YSL's spectrum of earrings, with the earrings almost 2" tall.
Each earring is a single poppy flower. Depicted in side view, the design is straightforward, with the petals red orangey enamel in hue and their shape delineated by shimmery gunmetal gray outlines. The flower's pistils in the center are also gunmetal gray. All the gray metal are embossed a bit.
The earrings are 1 7/8" tall and 1 1/4" wide. They are mirror images of each other. Their backs are gunmetal gray, also shimmery with a bit of patina.
The earrings have the distinctive YSL shaped and hinged clipbacks, which are stamped YSL.
In overall very good to excellent condition. The poppy red and gunmetal gray are vivid and bright and mostly intact. The earrings look like they were rarely, if ever, worn.
