A stunning pair of pink Christian Dior 1950s Earrings.
Mitchel Maer designed earrings for Christian Dior from 1952 to 1956. His designs were exuberant, playful and feminine and these earrings are no exception. Maer used semi-precious stones, artificial pearls and crystals amongst his materials.
I’m no expert but I think the smaller, pale pink, flowers that surround the centre-piece may be enamel though I may be wrong. I’m really not sure what material is used in the centre but it is a beautiful deep rose colour.
One earring bears the stamp “Christian Dior By Mitchell Maer”. Sadly, Maer’s company’s went into bankruptcy in 1956 and many items bought after that date had their stamp removed at the request of the Christian Dior company. The fact that the stamp remains adds value to these earrings should you consider purchasing as an investment. What an amazing opportunity to own a little bit of Fashion History!
I do not have the original box.
