One pair of earrings for pierced ears; each earring consists of 3 small square pieces of rainbow holographic foil adhered to 3 square pieces of white hard plastic; only one side of each piece has foil, which contains a square grid pattern; the 3 pieces are glued together in a stacked pattern but an offset manner so that the foil shows on the top and bottom pieces with the middle piece appearing as white plastic (this pattern is reversed when one flips the earrings); a small hole at the top allows the clip to pass through; jewelry.
Early holographic application commercially produced for personal adornment. Please note that due to the unique challenges of holography as a medium, high-resolution digital images are not available for most items in the holography collection. Please contact us for more information on reproducing images of holograms.
