Pink and black, as a color combination, was especially popular during the “Mad Men” era of the 1950’s-’60’s.
Here is a new version of this now-classic combo, in a pair of wonderfully graphic dangles.
Black jet and mother of pearl are traditional inlay materials, but the rosy-pink squares are not. They are a mineral new to jewelry, called phosphosiderite.
The bold contrast between sweet rose and emphatic black is enlivened by a streak of luminous mother of pearl, down the middle on one side.
On the other side, we see the darker and fabulous iridescence of natural abalone shell lighting up the center.
Unexpected and prettily dramatic, these checkerboard dangles are light on the ear (thank you, jet) and happily different.
Enjoy going back to the future with these fun earrings.
