Napier produced enameled earrings for many decades. The earring style and the type of enamel help us determine when Napier made the earrings. Some classic styles remained in the collection for several years–mainly designs from the spectator collections. We believe these earrings are from the late 1980s to early 1990s based on the pearlized enamel similar to the enamel used in the “Santa Fe” collection of 1989. Hopefully, one of our former Napier employees who follow this page will chime in.
