Description

Many influences contributed to the French Art Deco style. One was the exoticism of the Far East, typified by a theatrical Fouquet dress ornament (ca. 1923) in the Museum's collection. Its unexpected colors and materials, including Asian jade, onyx, diamonds, enamel, and platinum, are combined in the motif of a Chinese mask. The extraordinarily large scale of the jewel suggests that it was probably intended to be a tour-de-force exhibition piece. Our elegant earrings are adapted from this magnificent ornament.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely and Just the Right Length Being short, it's not infrequent that I'm unhappy with an online purchase of earrings. Despite the fact that the length is listed, and even when there's a mannequin head displaying the earrings to show scale, I will put them on and feel like a buffoon! These little beauties are perfect for a lady of small physical stature, but a taller lady will adore them, as well. They really do look like jade, and most people will think they are genuine Art Deco. However, their price reflects that of high-quality costume jewelry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect The size is just right. I appreciate the plastic disc on the back of the earrings which sits the earrings nicely on me. I also purchased the brooch. A match made in heaven. Both pieces are made of very nice quality. It makes such a unique and interesting set. Fabulous display on black, navy, charcoal. Such fun. Makes me smile. My first purchase. Glad I got it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant Earrings At first, I was quite disappointed by these earrings because they are a much lighter shade of green than as pictured. I bought them to go with a jade necklace and they are a totally different shade of green. Even so, the more I looked at them, the more I liked their distinctive styling. I was getting ready to send them back and decided I didn't want to part with them!
