RE-naissance collection: the rebirth of old (family) precious stones
The original drop earrings from the 1920s consisted only of the cut hemispherical rock crystal with the dangling ornaments. I had the image of a paste chandelier in mind. The delicate little hooks on which they were hung on the wearer’s ear looked rather thrifty – today one might perhaps even say cheap – but that was in accordance with the taste of the times. I had the top part re-engraved and made in such a way that the bottom part can be removed.
Only now is this an adequate lustre.
