I looked through my rhinestone collection and these 1970's 2-1/2" long earrings by Lewis Segal California shouted out for some attention. The rhinestones are 1/2" across. Very dramatic and good quality - could be worn w/a Halston Qiana jersey dress...or the Lanvin 1973 halter and palazzo pant Vogue pattern #2870 shown. Lewis Segal seems to be priced all over the board on ebay but these are nice.

I think wearing these and the outfits above would have helped get you into the Disco's VIP room - the 2nd level around the dance floor w/one way mirrors - not that I ever was cool enough or had the connection to get into those rooms but I've heard stories....sadly, I found these earrings much later so don't know what they have seen.

    Thank you Sean - I'm obsessing 70's right now - maybe because I bought a lot of it awhile ago in the late 80's when it wasn't cool and now looking at it again I appreciate the quality.

    Probably more fun than the "discos" of today. Can you post some more examples of 70s jewelry? Then I can keep an eye out!

    Yes discos today are not quite the same are they? Now I prefer old dives w/live music - even those open and close fast in this economy. Yes I will post some 70's jewels for you sometime this weekend. Be prepared for some ugly stuff - and some really fun stuff. Have a good day and happy hunting!

    Thank you Amber and Phil for loving this. That ad is from a 1973 Vogue pattern book I found recently. It sent me back in time w/memories of those things I sewed back in the 70's. It was so nice to have the magazine back in my possession again.
