"Textures fascinate craftsmen today more than ever before" - Graham Hughes, then secretary of the history-making Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths, the English professional association of goldsmiths, wrote this as early as 1963 (Hughes, Modern Jewelry, London 1963). Texture was a major theme of jewellery in the 1960s and early 1970s. No longer were purely shiny, polished gold surfaces in demand, but those that played with light and shadow through their surfaces and thus exhausted all facets of gold colors: surfaces like grains of sand were sometimes seen, sometimes reminiscent of veins in leaves or other natural structures, sometimes completely abstract. These were designs the likes of which had never been seen before, in any era of jewelry history. The gold structure and their open form are what also identify these earrings as designs of the time and make them appear extremely modern despite their classic floral theme. Small cultured pearls with a rosy luster contrast the textured gold with their soft luster. The earrings are in excellent condition. The perfect complement (not only) to the Chanel costume, which had just conquered the hearts of the ladies of the international jet set at that time!
