Luxe. Lovely. Lanvin.


This pair of vintage 1980s Lanvin clip earrings are so FABULOUS. They completely and utterly channel Dynasty. Perfect for a fancy night out on the town or perhaps for an evening wedding, as the bride or guest. They would also make a great gift. The earrings are in very good condition. More details noted below.

Not only are these earrings fabulous to wear, they're a collectible too. Lanvin is very popular among vintage designer jewelry collectors. Collectors seek out Vintage Lanvin jewelry pieces. This pair of Lanvin earrings are marked 'LANVIN GERMANY' which means that the premier high end costume jewelry maker Henkel & Grosse made the pair for Lanvin. Henkel & Grosse also made costume jewelry for Dior (a 50 year contract!) and Schiaparelli.

Lanvin began as a millinery boutique in Paris by its founder Jeanne Lanvin in 1889. In 1897, Lanvin gave birth to her daughter, who became Lanvin's muse. A children's line was added in 1908. The following year, Lanvin became a member of The Syndicat de la Couture. Her house was now a proper and accredited fashion house. The 1920s were a fruitful time for Lanvin: decorating hotels, establishing Lanvin sport, launching perfumes. In 1926, Jeanne Lanvin received the honor of being named Chevalier of the French Legion D'Honneur. In 1946, Lanvin passed away. The house is still going strong today under the direction of Albert Elbaz (since 2001). In Fall 2010, Lanvin created a lower priced line for mass chain retailer H&M.



History/Backstory: I purchased the earrings while in Virginia from an antiques dealer.

Condition: Very Good. The clips are nice and tight. There are no ear cushions. I don't know if there were originally. The rhinestones are sparkly. There are two teeny tiny places on each earring where there is small dot of goldtone loss/imperfection. That's the only reason for the Very Good rating...I would say Very Good/Excellent. You can see the 'dots' in Photos 4 & 5. Please convo if you would like additional photos. In no way do these small imperfections take away from the wearability or overall FABULOUSNESS of the earrings.


The back of the earrings are marked LANVIN GERMANY. The clips are also marked GERMANY.

Measurements:

Diameter: 1"

Weight: .5 ounces (together) on my postal scale.

Packaging: The earrings will be carefully packaged and shipped via USPS Priority Mail.

Please convo if you prefer a different shipment method, like First Class, First Class International.

I love to combine shipping. And I always refund postage overages.


Smoke free home.
