Louis Comfort Tiffany Plique-a-Jour Peridot Gold Necklace

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Crafted by the legendary artist and designer Louis Comfort Tiffany for Tiffany & Co., this extraordinary peridot and plique-à-jour enamel necklace is a rare and unique masterpiece of jewelry design. Delicately crafted, the necklace boasts finely executed enameling in shades of blue and green that fill an exquisite filigree design formed from 18k yellow gold. Two perfectly hued green peridots weighing approximately 2.00 carats each accent the enamel, adding the perfect amount of shimmer to this enchanting design.

Best remembered for his stained glass windows and lamps, along with his Favrile glass, Louis Comfort Tiffany did not begin jewelry design until 1902. Considering the delicacy of his glassworks, his foray into the world of jewelry design seems a natural progression, and his creative output in his jewelry pieces mirror many of the art nouveau aesthetics he perfected in prior years. The present piece, utilizing the unique plique-à-jour enameling technique for which Louis Comfort was renowned, mimics the same effect of light coming through a stained glass window. Taking much of his inspiration from nature, Louis Comfort only produced about 750 enamel pieces in his lifetime, make this extraordinary design a true rarity.

This important necklace comes with a letter of authenticity signed by Janet Zapata, author of The Jewelry and Enamels of Louis Comfort Tiffany.

Signed "Tiffany & Co."
