A fabulous pair of earrings. Jade was a popular stone during the inter-war period, and these earrings are an excellent example of the use of jade in Art Deco styles. Art Deco jewellery is characterized not only by geometric forms, but also by the combination of platinum, diamond, and coloured stones. Jade has been regarded for thousands of years as a romantic and healing stone. These are wonderfully colourful and sparkly earrings.
