Vintage 1960s Glass Ball Drop Earrings
Fun and flashy, these swinging ball drop earrings will light up the dance floor like tiny disco balls! Shiny foil-backed glass stones shimmer all around the silver-tone metal orbs that dangle gracefully below the ear by way of delicate anchor double chains. An identical smaller-sized ball sits at the earlobe, centred with an emerging bezel-set glass stone. These vintage sparklers date from the 1960s-1970s, a period known as the Modern Jewellery era. Designs aligned with the ideology of the time, which was all about being daring, bold, and self-confident. Inspired by the Space Age, Op Art made its grand entrance with geometric patterns like circles, spirals, and hexagons, while optical illusions played with visual perception. And since women wore their hair mostly short or tucked back, long and large earrings became a must-have for achieving that dramatic oversized look. Festive and hypnotising, these vintage ball drop earrings will make the perfect finishing touch to any evening outfit.
