Round and marquis-shaped aurora borealis (AB) diamanté reflect light and play with color in these 1950s pendant earrings by Christian Dior. Small turquoise glass beads form the perimeter in a complimentary shade of blue. The color you see in the diamanté centers is only the light dancing on the stones. These clip-back earrings are set in rhodium-plated base metal.
Schiaparelli's signature dentelle-faceted tourmaline-glass stones in a blue/green combination rather than the usual watermelon color form this elegant and substantial 1950s bracelet. The elaborately-decorated silver-tone setting closes with a tongue-in-groove clasp and safety chain. Here is another statement bracelet by this amazing designer!
This classic chicklet necklace features square-cut faceted pink-tourmaline-glass stones set in sterling silver frames with a spring-ring clasp. This necklace is an excellent example of an Art Deco classic in a hard-to-find color.
In this 1950s bracelet is another color combination that shouts Schiaparelli's name: here her signature color (shocking pink) is paired with red, black and clear rhinestones set in heavy silver-tone metal. This statement bracelet has a fold-over clasp and safety chain. What a glorious piece!
Here is another creation fashioned from richly-textured leaves, one of Schiaparelli's favorite motifs, this time forming a 1950s bracelet and earrings set. The silver-tone metal bracelet closes with a fold-over clasp and safety chain, and the matching earrings are clip-backs. A tailored, classic and elegant look.
