Pate De Verre Drop Earrings

About the Item

Designed by Françoise Montague. The established business included a global clientele and boutique in Paris. After Montague took over, her most important clients were Nina Ricci and Franck & Fils. Early jewelry by Montague, according to Muller, “is recognizable in the abundant use of enamel and iridescent glass beads." However, these pieces are unmarked and are often difficult to identify correctly. Montague continued to work the business through the 1950s and '60s, earning accolades, including the Grand Prix des Creations de Bijouterie Fantaisie in 1961 and maintaining a loyal clientele. Marion Stern took over the business in 1978 and still oversees the Francoise Montague workshop in Paris. The company pared down its staff considerably during the 1990s. It rebounded in the 2000s by adding many new designs to its couture jewelry portfolio and building on old standards . Paté de verre is a French term which literally means “glass paste”. Ground glass, which could be colored by pigments, is poured into a mold and fused into the desired shape. It was first applied by ancient Greeks and the art revived in the 19th century. This technique is very closely related to enameling. The House of Gripoix perfected this savoir faire for thé House of Chanel.
