TRUE VINTAGE 1950’S EGYPTIAN REVIVAL NECKLACE AND EARRING SET

IMG_0990     In the early to mid-fifties there was a fad of putting Egyptian motifs on all kinds of fashion items, and I have several.  This Egyptian style craze had also happened in the 1920’s – especially with furniture.

This is a costume set and it’s a lot of fun.  Not really my colors, but it’s a family item and I enjoy it.  Very unique.

A SWEET SET – A FORMAL OR DRESSY EVENING IN TRUE VINTAGE RHINESTONES AND “PEARLS”

IMG_0956      This is one of my favorite little necklaces, from the 1950’s or early Sixties.  Very sweet – love the rhinestone bow and the faux pearl drop.  The chain, also, is studded with rhinestones all the way.

The earrings are a bit later – late Sixties or Seventies, but they coordinate nicely.  A parure like this would have been perfect with a formal pouf dress – depending on the age of the wearer and the occasion.

Definitely costume jewelry, but so pretty . . . .. . . . .
