Red glass 1980s Vintage Earrings (Deadstock – never worn)
Original and never worn 1980s vintage earrings. This attractive pair of clip on earrings are made from two large faceted red glass beads and have sprung metal clips at the back. They measure 2.8cm in diameter – would make fabulous shoe clips too!
This pair of 1980s vintage earrings come with the original backing plastic card, named “Sherre’s”, and are ex factory stock – aka ‘deadstock’ – and are in mint condition since they have never been worn.
Note: on the back you can see a little of the glue where the glass is held to the clip part; this is typical of mass produced costume jewellery from the 80’s and does not detract from the wearability.
Why we love costume jewellery
Classic and elegant, costume jewellery can add uniqueness and flair to any outfit, smart or casual, at an affordable price. Vintage costume jewellery is a statement – and is a great way to express your individual style. It is also great to know that you are unlikely to find two identical, so there is not much chance of someone wearing the same as you.
Early costume jewellery is different to its modern counterparts and although costume jewellery has been mass produced since the early 20s, the earlier back you go, generally, the better the quality and more interesting the materials. You do not find the same robust materials or quality finishes in more modern mass produced items – vintage items were made to last, and with one size fits all – make perfect gifts!
