A LARGE AND GLITZY HOLLYWOOD REGENCY STYLE BARRETTE MADE IN THE 1980s

CONDITION: good vintage condition

SIZE: 4¼ x 2½ ins (11 x 6 cms)

This large and glitzy Hollywood Regency style barrette is fitted with a spring clip fastening which is in good order.

Probably made in USA.

This unusual and eye catching ornament is made from acetate, faux pearl and rhinestones, and is typical of the 1980s. It takes the form of an over stylised spray and is an assemblage of faux pearl leaves, faux pearl cabochons, applied glitter and rhinestones.

The costume jewellery industry flourished in the 1980s, and women experienced a new freedom and confidence to wear frankly fake fashion jewellery. TV soap operas such as Dynasty epitomized an era of glamour and decadence in which personal ornaments were large and glitzy. The fashion for “big” hair encouraged the wearing of statement hair jewellery like this.
