The return of the eighties

It’s well known that fashion loves what it hated yesterday: in this case, the jewelry of the eighties. Yellow gold clips, chokers and gadroon rings adorned with large purple, yellow, red and green stones like those worn by Joan Collins in Dynasty or Jerry Hall in Studio 54. Hoop earrings are also enjoying phenomenal success. After the 70s, vintage enthusiasts tracked down Bulgari, OJ Perrin or Poiray – the decade’s emblematic jewelers – at Miller‘s or at auctions. Who said the 80s were the years of bad taste?
