This article was in Vogue in 1955. Judith McCann was born 5,000 years too late. That's how long women have been wearing earrings and she is the first to make earrings comfortable. Her remarkable invention the Wingback earring is a totally new way to wear jewels at the ear. This amazing earring rests cloud-easy on the ear's cradle, just above the lobe. It fits around the ear lobe and stays on without pinch or sag. Women feel Wingback earrings are a dream come true. And the women unable to wear clip or screw on her small sensitive ears, now thinks of Wingbacks as one of the wonders of this fashionable world.
