Straight out the pages of The Great Gatsby, our Charleston Crystal Collection conjures an image of glittering jazz, opulent dance halls, and parties filled with wild abandon.
The embodiment of that 1920s free spirit was the flapper. They traded in their constricting floor-length dresses and binding corsets for short stylish shifts more conducive to doing the Charleston. Free from a strict moral climate, women finally starting casting their vote, attending colleges and universities, and getting behind the wheel of automobiles. A more modern, carefree spirit was born.
Chances are if you ventured into a speakeasy on a Saturday night you’d find one of these newly independent women wearing jewelry bedazzled with sparkling crystals and shimmering glass to catch the light. Yes, that’s how she’d have it. Jewelry to be noticed. Because after all a girl who toasts prohibition with a glass of gin is no wallflower.
