Periwinkle Blue Moonglow Lucite Hoop Earrings | Vintage Bold Haskell Hoops
Periwinkle blue - almost lavender - hoop earrings in a vintage lucite and a moonglow finish. This style is known as the Leetie Bold Haskell Hoop & it's made with rare vintage parts - moonglow hoops that are authentically vintage are hard to find. These are a hand-dyed style & each 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. And then it's also an homage to one of our beloved cats who was named after the designer. This style comes in loads of other colors & the model is wearing the Haskell hoop in another color to give you an idea of the size & 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. I 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.
