Long emerald poured glass, paste and gilded metal drop earrings, Chanel, 1980s

About

A beautiful and eye catching pair of emerald and clear paste drop earrings, made by Maison Gripoix for Chanel in the late 1970s/early 1980s. A large emerald poured glass cabuchon sits on the ear, circled in clear pastes, and a luscious emerald poured glass drop hangs from this , suspended from a gilt metal and clear paste leaf motif. These are true Chanel/Gripoix style! The matching necklace to these earrings is also listed on our storefront. Not much needs to be said about Coco Chanel, so famous and successful a designer is she! Chanel opened her first boutique in 1924, many years in advance of what was to become a worldwide and continuing fashion. Whilst many disapproved of costume jewellery , praising fine or real jewellery, Chanel championed the merits of faux jewellery, often mixing both together, stating that real jewellery would no more enhance the wearer that faux! This supremacy of costume jewellery over real continued all through her career, (all of which is now legendary,through numerous books and films.), continuing right through to the creations of the house in the current day.
