Description

Wow! This is a stunning Schiaparelli bracelet and earrings set. 5 strands of Turquoise Beads in the bracelet. Aurora Borealis rhinestones and black glass rhinestones. When you connect the clasp together on the bracelet it is spectacular! This set is in excellent condition, the clasp and clip earrings work great. It's ready to wear! The bracelet measures 7 1/2 inches long and the earrings measure 1 1/2 inches in diameter.

During the war Elsa Schiaparelli decamped to New York and established connections she would later use in her jewelry business. Returning to Paris in 1945 the couture business was soon up and running again, but without the excesses of the pre-war years. During this time she employed two famous assistants, Pierre Cardin and Humbert de Givenchy. But her couture business did not flourish and she closed it in 1954 and returned once more to New York, this time to concentrate on her jewelry.

She had begun designing jewelry in the 1930's when her designs were produced or influenced by her Surrealist friends. There was the brooch in the shape of an eye, lobster pins, lip-shaped brooches with pearls for teeth, earrings in the shape of telephones - they were audacious often whimsical but also reflected the philosophy of the Surrealists. Her famous 1938 Circus Collection included clowns, bears, acrobats and horses. Her famous Lobster Dress, using a drawing by Salvador Dali, was worn by Wallace Simpson during a photo session by Cecil Beaton just before Simpson married the Duke of Windsor.
