A very early piece by the famous jewelry designer Elsa Peretti, this Jug Jar is from the early 1970s.
The Jug Jar is featured in the Tiffany Blue Book from 1975 to 1976 and is a highly collectible piece that has long been retired from production.
Made of solid 18k gold with a small opening at the top, the necklace was designed to hold a small flower or drops of perfume.
The chain, which is 23 inches long and accented with six gold spheres, is suited with a toggle closure, an indication that this necklace was made before Tiffany required Peretti to change the clasp design to the standard lobster clasp.
Both the jug and the chain are signed Tiffany & Co. and Peretti.

Elsa Peretti was a successful model and fully paid-up member of the sixties New York party scene before she started designing jewelry and accessories for her friends, including Halston and Oscar de la Renta. In 1974 she started working exclusively for Tiffany & Co at which she designed her eponymous Diamonds by the Yard, Bean, Open Heart, Sevillana, Teardrop and Bottle collections. Peretti was born in Florence on May 1, 1940 – the youngest daughter of a wealthy Roman businessman. She later studied interior design at Volbicela School in Rome before relocating to New York to further her modeling career.
