Antique Perfume Button Earrings - Crescent Moons

Antique perfume buttons date back to the 1700's, when fragrances were too heavy to wear on the skin and clothing. Women would dab their fragrance onto the fabric of the buttons and enjoy perfumes without staining or irritation.

The history of these beauties is something I have always found intriguing, from the romanticism of women handing them off to their loved ones before battle to remind them of home, and how the majority of these types of buttons were coveted once they fell out of popularity.

The buttons I've used for this pair of dangles have a crescent moons and stars using a metallic woven fabric. Consistent with age and wear, these have not been polished as my other button pieces have because the patina they haves lends to the age and mysticism of them!

Buttons measure 7/8", and have three dangling chains accented with 1940's NOS Swarovski crystals and antique French cut steel beads.

Lever back hooks are American made brass that has been given a lovely antique finish. The are lead, nickel and cadmium free and safe for sensitive ears.
