Elsa Schiaparelli Jewelry

From Shocking Pink to lava rocks, this Schiaparelli jewelry collection features pieces from the 1940s-1950s. You will find bracelets, earrings, brooches and necklaces in extraordinary designs and distinctive materials. Elsa Schiaparelli, along with her arch-rival Coco Chanel, was responsible for the acceptance and success of costume jewelry in the 1920s. Both women designed specific pieces to adorn their haute couture. Schiaparelli believed that costume jewelry, in addition to being an essential part of fashion design, was an art form in its own right. She collaborated with many jewelry designers as well as with Surrealist artists who were her friends. Read more about Elsa Schiaparelli.

    Amethyst 1940s Earrings by Elsa Schiaparelli

    , ,

    These classic and classy emerald-cut, amethyst-glass late-1940s ear clips by Elsa Schiaparelli are really hard to photograph. The stones are open back (without any green, as the photos may suggest) in a silver-tone setting. The actual color is a deep amethyst. I have a faux pearl bracelet with a similar clasp, also by Schiaparelli, which I will include with this purchase. (The clasp of the bracelet is lovely, but the quality of the pearls is disappointing and the strands need re-stringing – hence, the no-cost offer.)

    Brown & Golden Topaz & Gold Scroll 1950s Bracelet by Elsa Schiaparelli

    , ,

    This 1950s bracelet by Elsa Schiaparelli features nine links of gold-plated metal scrolls. The larger links are each set with an open-back, faceted, emerald-cut brown-topaz glass stone, with pairs of diamanté accents on each side. The smaller connecting links are each set with a faceted, round golden-topaz-glass stone. As usual with this maker’s pieces, the design is finely detailed. Here, the scrolls are at the top and bottom of the large stones and at the sides of the smaller ones. This classic piece has a fold-over clasp with safety chain. The matching pendant earrings are available – scroll down to see them.

    Brown & Golden Topaz & Gold Scroll 1950s Pendant Earrings by Elsa Schiaparelli

    , ,

    These 1950s ear clips by Elsa Schiaparelli feature multiple stones in a gold-tone setting. At the top, a large, faceted, round golden-topaz glass stone is positioned to adorn your earlobe. This stone is linked to a smaller, faceted, round brown-topaz-glass stone, which is connected to the setting of the pendant. This focal point – the pendant – is a large, faceted, open-back, brown-topaz-glass stone in an ornate setting. Its top is crowned with diamanté; the bottom rests on a scroll accented with another brown topaz. Please note that the dark striations in the large stones shown by my camera are not visible when the earrings are worn. Though not signed with the maker’s name, the ear clips are marked with the utility patent for one type of finding Schiaparelli used. The design of these pendants is undoubtedly hers – scroll down to see the matching bracelet.

    Citrine & Gold Spray 1950s Brooch by Elsa Schiaparelli

    , ,

    A richly-textured, gold-plated leaf forms the base of this lovely 1950s brooch by Elsa Schiaparelli. The top layer has citrine-glass-stone flowers with pavé silver-tone stems. The level of detail is superb: in addition to the elaborate, layered construction, the leaf has visible veins and a furled bottom on its front and texture on the back. This lovely example of 1950s tailored jewelry is a winner! I’m not sure which way it was intended to be worn, so I’m showing both orientations in the photos – take a look and decide which you prefer.

    Citrine, Pearl & Gold 1950s Brooch & Earrings Set by Elsa Schiaparelli

    , ,

    This Schiaparelli earrings and brooch set from the 1950s features a large citrine glass stone surrounded by tiny pearls in an elaborate, antiqued, gold-plated setting. Notice how the faceting of each citrine ― known as a dentelle ― forms an eight-pointed star design. Schiaparelli frequently used this cut of glass stone in her pieces. The pin has a roll-over safety clasp. You can see the utility patent for the ear clip here, below the names Frederick A. Ballou, Jr. & Rogers T. Stafford.

    Gold Leaf & Art Glass 1940s Brooch by Elsa Schiaparelli

    , ,

    This gold-tone late-1940s brooch by Elsa Schiaparelli is “designed as [a] dancing openwork leaf” (Becker) and set with emerald, ruby, sapphire and amber art-glass cabochons in dog-tooth prongs. The outline of the leaf and stem are textured. This versatile and elegant brooch closes with a roll-over safety clasp. I think this jewel was meant to be worn with the leaf pointing down, as shown in the first photo, but the third photo shows the leaf pointing up – you decide which you prefer!

    Golden & Brown Topaz & Gold Clover 1950s Earrings by Elsa Schiaparelli

    , ,

    Three faceted, shield-cut topaz-glass stones – two golden and one brown – with citrine accents form these ear clips by Elsa Schiaparelli. The exotic three-sided shape of the large stones enhances the three-leaf clover design in gold-tone metal. These details and the elaborate construction of the earring backs exemplify this maker’s ingenuity and quality. This color combination – which is perfect for those who look best in warm colors – can be found in other Schiaparelli pieces. You can see the utility patent for the earring clasp here, shown below the names Frederick A. Ballou, Jr. & Rogers T. Stafford.

    This stunning 1950s three-dimensional brooch by Elsa Schiaparelli features clusters of ruby-crystal beads atop ruby and aurora borealis (AB) rhinestones. In person, this piece looks like a display of fireworks – the iridescence of the AB navettes is hard to capture in photos. The setting is silver-tone metal with a roll-over safety clasp. Even the back of the brooch is textured!

    Sapphire Lava Rock & Amethyst 1950s Brooch by Elsa Schiaparelli

    , ,

    This Schiaparelli brooch is one of those pieces that should come with instructions for how to wear it. So I’m showing this exquisite 1950s creation in three different positions, hoping that at least one of them will appeal to you. Or you may think of a better one! This incredible brooch has two large sapphire-blue lava rocks in dog-tooth prongs embellished with sapphires and amethysts. The complementary glass stones are round and navette in shape. The lava rocks have an incredible iridescence (like a fire within), and the color combination is delicious. The setting is silver-tone metal with a roll-over safety clasp. This gorgeous statement piece is Schiaparelli at her best!
