Nostalgia and grace

Playful vintage earrings with rubies & diamonds in gold, around 1985

Antique jewellery forms were revived several times in the course of the 20th century. The 1980s in particular saw a return to models from the supposedly good old days. Antiques were in demand as never before and belonged as a badge of good taste in the stylish home of the decade. Not only were old pieces of jewellery being worn again, but new creations were being created in the spirit of the 19th century. The present pair of playful earrings is a typical representative of this fashion. The earrings are made of high-carat yellow gold and consist of historic-looking spiral tendrils adorned with small leaf ornaments. White diamonds as well as suspended ruby drops further enliven the design. The ear jewellery is a stylish eye-catcher from the 80s with a nostalgic touch - very well preserved and made of precious materials.
