A Celebration of 1970s Jewellery

Discover Your Perfect YSL Earrings

Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) is renowned for its exceptional craftsmanship, attention to detail, and timeless style. The brand's earrings reflect the innovative spirit and elegance that YSL is celebrated for. Here's an in-depth look at YSL earrings from the 1970s to the early 2000s.


1970s: Experimental Elegance In the 1970s, YSL's earrings were characterised by bold, oversized shapes and the use of rich materials such as gold, silver, and semi-precious stones. The designs often incorporated elements of nature, featuring motifs like leaves, flowers, and other organic shapes. Loulou de La Falaise, one of YSL's muses and key collaborators, joined the fashion house in 1972 and significantly influenced the jewellery designs. Iconic pieces from this era include the "Loulou" earrings, which featured bold and elaborate designs with intricate detailing. The 1975 coral collection also stands out, showcasing pieces that combined natural coral elements with luxurious metals.

1980s: Iconic Designs The 1980s saw YSL creating some of its most iconic earring designs. This decade featured a shift towards more refined and minimalist aesthetics. One of the standout designs was the YSL logo earring, introduced in the 1980s, which became one of the brand's most recognisable pieces. These earrings featured the brand's initials in bold lettering, often crafted in gold or silver tones. Another notable design from this period was the use of geometric shapes and vibrant colours, with materials like resin and Lucite being prominently used.


1990s: The Hoop Revolution and Logo Mania In the 1990s, YSL introduced a range of hoop earrings that quickly became must-have accessories. These designs ranged from simple gold-tone hoops to more elaborate styles with dangling charms or coloured gemstones. The era also saw the rise of logo mania, with the YSL logo prominently featured on various earring designs. The heart motif became significant during this decade, appearing in various forms, reflecting the 90s trend of bold and expressive fashion accessories.


Early 2000s: Modern Innovations As YSL transitioned into the early 2000s, the brand continued to innovate with new materials and bold designs. Earrings from this period often featured intricate metalwork and the use of semi-precious stones. The designs from this era pushed the boundaries of traditional jewellery, incorporating modern elements while maintaining the brand's signature elegance. Collaborations with different designers, such as Stefano Pilati, brought fresh perspectives to YSL's earring collections, ensuring the pieces remained relevant and highly coveted.
