If you don’t own these tassel earrings you might have missed the boat. I don’t know a single person
who doesn’t own these earrings now and on a daily basis I count all the different colours that I see on passers-by on the tube. My current record is 8. However, no matter how hard I’ve looked I can’t really find the origins of these earrings and where they came from. In all honesty most earrings like this are inspired by Oscar De La Renta who is the king of statement tassel earrings, but I feel that I might look at a painting and see that Botticelli’s Venus was wearing them when she stepped out of that shell or that Marie Antoinette probably owned a pair and that Cleopatra was buried in hers.
