About

Beautiful multi stoned, multi shaped and multi coloured earrings from Elsa Schiaparelli. These sit beautifully on the ear , lying flat against the face, elegant and strong, with their subtle and subdued colouring.
Elsa Schiaparelli was one of the most influential fashion designers of the 20th century. She worked in new and highly original forms, and her work with the Surrrealist artists such as Jean Cocteau, and Salvador Dali is highly prized. In jewellery, early collaborations with Jean Schlumberger and Jean Clement are some of her rarest and cherished designs. Alongside Coco Chanel, she was responsible for some of the greatest creations of the 20th century.
