All Deco'd out & ready to shine
The 1920s was a wonderfully decadent era. Flappers— with their short dresses even shorter hair— were the new standard bearers of fashion, shocking society with their footloose and fancy-free attitudes. They wanted a new style, something that was not like the frilly, traditional jewelry of the Edwardian and Art Nouveau eras. And the jewelry designers of the time delivered.
Departing from the organic curvilinear flourishes that belonged to the earlier movement, Art Nouveau, these designers embraced the vertical line and simple, repetitive geometric patterns. The purpose was to evoke elegance and sophistication.
Our sparkling chandelier drop earrings embrace the classic Art Deco motif with an elegant geometric design and the generous sparkle of the Ultimate Diamond Alternative™, DiamondAura®. These stones not only emulate the world’s most perfect diamonds…they surpass them. However, they don’t surpass them in price, making this level of decadent sparkle affordable.

Very pretty but not pink
These are very pretty and unusual. But the diamond-shaped elements that are pink in color in the photograph are not actually pink; they are purple (I'd described the color as lavender). I kept them despite the inaccurate color because they're quite elegant and the color will still match some clothes I have. Note that they are slightly smaller than the description implies; the description says "2" drop" but the drop portion (the part that is dangling and not attached directly to the post) is 1 5/8 inches.
