Two matched pairs of geometric Art Deco style hair combs in gilt metal with black enamel from the 1980s
The costume jewellery industry flourished in the 1980s, and women experienced a new freedom and confidence to wear frankly fake fashion jewellery. In fact, the bigger and glitzier the better! The fashion hallmarks of the decade were big shoulders, big hair and co-ordinating costume jewellery. Hair was teased and ratted out, and this ‘big’ hair cried out to be balanced by glitzy jewellery in bright gilt settings.
Other looks which we find in the 1980s are a revival of interest in styles of the past such as Art Deco and Art Nouveau. These items have a contemporary look that is eminently wearable today.
