Napier 1970s Die-stamped Earrings

These fabulous adjustable screw-back earrings feature die-stamped findings with open metalwork. The large plaque was folded over to create a double layer pendant drop. Although we don’t have specific documentation to precisely date these earrings, they are most likely early 1970s. In particular, the line featured a lot of filigree metalwork earrings in 1973, which has us lean toward the early 1970s when big styles were quite the fashion.
