Treasured by collectors the world over, Yves St. Laurent is one of the most sought after designers. At the young age of 21 he was named head of design at Christian Dior and opened his own boutique in 1961 with instant recognition. His bold designs were meant to turn heads and modernize women. These earrings do just that with bold gold tone hoops hanging from round semi circle clip backs. They measure 1 ½" in length and the hoop is 1 ¼" at its widest point. They are marked YSL on the back and date from the late 1970s.
