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.
One of the best things to come out of the 1970s were the iconic Tiffany &Co. by Elsa Peretti bean earrings. Crafted in 18K gold, these fabulous earrings have a bean shaped carved jade stone that hangs from a simple earring wire. These wonderful earrings are signed and hand numbered. The earrings are marked "T & Co.", "750", and "Peretti" on the earring wires. Perfect for your classic essentials collection, this pair would be perfect for any jade lover!
Measurements: The earrings hang approximately 1" long (including the earring wire) and are 3/8" at their widest point.
Condition: The earrings are overall in excellent condition. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting. All of the jadeite stones are intact and securely set.
