- The Cartier Sputnik earrings shown here were designed to commemorate the launch of the space program, hence the “Sputnik” moniker and avant-garde look. Made by Cartier in America in 14 karat gold, this pair is especially compelling with diamonds on the tip of each spike, Signed Cartier.
- Suzanne Belperron designed these “Coquillage” earrings rendered in 22k French gold for the House of Boivin. Her designs were so distinctive that she never signed them as her “style was (her) signature”. These earrings, offered for the first time for sale, were made in the late 1950’s/early 1960’s and are featured on page 210 of the book on Belperron jewelry by Corbett and Landrigan. With Certificate of Authenticity.
- The Van Cleef “leaf” earrings we offer are especially flattering on the ear. Old mine, European cut diamonds are assembled in a dimensional foliate shape, totaling five carats (GH color, VS clarity) set in 18k gold. Signed Van Cleef and Arpels with French assay and workshop marks.
- Pierre Sterle created the “Noeud” or rope twist earrings shown here, in the 1950’s at the height of his career as a “Couturier” of jewelry. He collaborated with Jacques Fath and designed for Colette and The Aga Khan among other high profile clients. Rare and collectible, wonderfully wearable. As shown in the book on Sterle by Viviane Jutheau.
