1980s D'Orlan Colourful Dangle Clip On Earrings
These charming vintage clip on earrings were made by the Canadian company D'Orlan as part of their Buried Treasure collection in the 1980s. The articulated earrings are plated in D'Orlan's signature 22kt gold and are decorated with a mix of colourful round Swarovski crystals and faux pearl, turquoise and coral spheres.
They are signed 'D'ORLAN ©' on the back of each clip arm and are fitted with the original earpads.
D'Orlan, founded in the late 1950s, was a Canadian jewellery company based in Toronto, Ontario. Its founder trained under top jewellery designer Marcel Boucher and produced jewellery exclusively for the Boucher Company, whose vintage pieces are particularly collectable. They had a reputation for using the finest materials and put them together in imaginative settings.
D'Orlan was eventually sold to Nina Ricci.
How do you rate the condition of a piece?
Excellent - No visible flaws to note but items may exhibit some signs of age related wear
Very Good - Some visible flaws which aren't considered to impair the wearability of the piece
Good - Some more notable flaws but the piece is still in collectible condition
All items are vintage and have lived a previous life, therefore signs of age related wear are to be expected. I do my best to bring attention to any faults in the description and by using the condition scale.
