Trend Spotlight: Keeping It Cool with Fan-studded Finery

Step outside the box of everyday monotamy for a night of shimmying and swaying in old-deco glitz and allure with something a little etherial, exotic and fanning from afar.

The hand fan is a classic artefact that originates far back into prehistoric times, first being a device of practicality in keeping its' wearer cool and keeping fires bright and live with oxygen. As time progressed these very same fans transformed into decorative and ornamental pieces that many carried as an artistic symbolism of class. Embellished representations of these hand fans originate back to the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans and later re-merging as a sign of femininity and undemanding elegance within India and China.

Travelling into central Europe within the 1500's, the handheld fan became the covetable accessory for many as a decorative and expressive extension of stylish nobility and a fashionable symbol of royal class and wealth. The delicately effeminate and dainty design of the fan has recently seen a sudden stylish and exotic re-encarnaion within the jewellery world. Dazzling and demanding attention upon red carpet galas and fanning the air of vintage-cool upon fashion runways, the fan-motif earrings have been splaying their charm far and wide.

Enamoured by the elegant charm and grace of such fine jewellery inspiration, take a look at my adored fangled fan finds festooned with enchanting gemstones and clipped in angular design!

We dare you to slink into something a little elegant and captivating with a slick of chic in a pair of ear candy beauties fanning in class, demure and glamour..!

Love, Sarah
