This piece of “sweetheart jewelry” originally belonged to Mrs. E. Jones, the wife of a USAAF ground crew member who had been assigned to the 569th Bomb Squadron during the war. Sweetheart jewelry was a popular and fashionable way for people back on the home front to demonstrate their support of the war effort by showing support for their loved ones. This earring sports the prop and wings emblem (a symbol that was commonly used in the Army Air Force) – a perfect way for the wearer to tell people exactly which military branch their significant other was serving in.
