Here we have a stunning pair of anondized or colored aluminum earrings designed by David Spada. Spada attended the Parsons School of Design in the early 80’s. According to a NY Times article from 1992, the freedom rings were introduced in 1991 in San Francisco as a fund raising item at the gay and lesbian community’s annual Freedom Day Parade. The colored aluminum rings come in colors of the rainbow and have evolved as a symbol of Gay Pride. In Spada’s own words ”the colors represent the diversity of the community.” This particular pair is one of the fullest I have seen. Each earring displays rings of green, blue, orange, red, gold, magenta and tangerine. Some of the rings also have a series of black painted dashes on the outer edges. They are in excellent condition with no wear to the aluminum or the color. Each earring is approximately 3 ¼” long from the top of the clip part to the end of the longest rings. When hanging they are about 1 ½” wide at the fullest point. Clip backs are tight and each earring has a small cushion as part of the mechanism. Each is signed SPADA on the back of the clip. Spada’s work is getting harder and harder to find. Don’t miss out on a rare piece of design history!
