Traditional jewellery often followed out-dated aristocratic examples. Many Spanish traditional earrings were based on 17th and 18th century patterns, but over time local differences became fixed, and patterns became characteristic of a particular place.

Long narrow earrings, often set with red stones, are typical of Barcelona. They are usually set with red glass, or foiled crystal, as here, rather than precious stones.
