About

Set with deep mottled amethyst cabuchons, and highlights of deep aurora and light amethyst pastes, this necklace and earrings by the wonderful Elsa Schiaparelli from the mid 1950s, has a poise and elegance to heighten any wearer/outfit. Highly typical of her creations of this period, this set has an unusal Art Nouveau twist, and is a wonderful addition to any wardrobe,as a token of Schiaparelli. Each piece is signed. 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.
