These large clip earrings would be so good for the sun, on the beach, or at a holiday disco! Being plastic they are not too heavy. The colours of the glass stones would match almost any outfit! I always have a selection of holiday/disco dancing type earrings in my shop at Grays Antiques. Of course the earrings are not only to wear on holiday - they would look good with a variety of outfits!

This Trifari necklace is a lovely mottled, jade green colour and is by Trifari - one of the best known of the American costume jewellery makers. It would date from the 1940-1950's I think - although it could be a little later. All the green beads are knotted in

Here's a wonderful large, celluloid, floral hair comb. Probably from the first part of the 20th century. The celluloid is a blond colour with a black overlay. The flowers and lovely. I am not an expert on hair combs but I do like this one. Would be good for a collection - or for someone who has the hair to support it. It curves on either side. Full measurements on my web site - www.gillianhorsup.com - price £95 reference no 2405 B98/23. I always have some hair combs at my shop in Grays Antiques - which is very near to Bond Street tube station in central London.

Had 5 pairs of my clip earrings on Kate Moss in a shoot entitled 'Beach Chic'. June 2013. Photographed by Patrick Demarchelier and styled by Lucinda Chambers. The earrings are 60's in style and the shoot is in the style of Brigitte Bardot. I usually have a selection of this style of clip earrings in the shop and the magazines borrow them quite a lot! www.gillianhorsup.com

Here's a large, ?1980's gilt pendant with a blue (aqua) glass stone in the middle. It is decorated round the edge with wire work. I have put it on an Adrian Mann chain but the loop is big enough to take a thicker chain. Full details of the measurements are on my web site - www.gillianhorsup.com and the reference number is 2393 B108/37 - price £88. Love this because it makes a statement! I have other gold tone jewellery in the shop if you can get to Grays Antiques in central London.
