Born in Florence, Elsa Peretti's first introduction with her collection began at Tiffany & Co. in 1974. During that time her collection debuted to high acclaim. Her inspiration in jewelry came from nature with elements such as bones, beans, hearts, scorpions, snakes, teardrops and sea-shells. Peretti's designs are translated in a wide variety of materials, however her most popular designs are her works in silver.
These beautiful estate earrings are designed for Tiffany & Co. by Elsa Peretti! A magnificent pair of earrings, they are crafted from 18k yellow gold and are inspired by the patterns and the repetition of a snake and its curvature. A simple post rests on the back of each earring, with an accompanying earring back for secure wear.
