Dark Purple Metallic Lucite Bold Haskell Hoop Earrings
Dark purple hoops in a great size & a metallic enamel-like finish. Each is hand-dyed & freshly made with vintage parts. Hoop measures approximately 1" in diameter and about 15mm in width.
This style is known as the Haskell hoop & is the perfect mix of retro and modern styles. The name pays homage to jewelry designer Miriam Haskell who was one of our favorites in the 40's, 50's & 60's. It comes in loads of other colors.The model is wearing these in the color 'Violet Tulle' so you can get an idea of the scale.
Most all earrings are made with vintage lucite parts that were made in Rhode Island in the 1960's - early 80's by Best Plastics. We hand-set them with surgical steel earring posts and they have sturdy surgical steel/acrylic backings on them as well. Light-weight & fun to wear.
