Toward the end of the 17th century vast wigs worn by men made it impractical for them to wear the fashionable broad-brimmed hat. To accommodate this problem, hats were carried beneath the arm. Soon after that, hats began to be folded to make them easier to carry.
The tricorn hat, or the hat with three sides dominated the fashion scene. Beaver felt was the most popular material, but others including wool and camel's down were also available. These silver colored earrings dangle approximately 1-1/2.

These are exactly as pictured. They are very cute and and not too big and not too small. It won't be hugely obvious to anyone who sees you wearing them but if they are close they will notice. It's a lovely and subtle way to keep America's colonial history close to you. Definitely recommend.
