Our glamorous drop earrings are adapted from an Art Deco design by Romain de Tirtoff (French, born Russia, 1892-1990), better known as Erté. The linear, geometric design is crafted in 18K yellow-gold plate with Swarovski® crystals and hand-applied enamel, for a striking pair that will dress up your look. The artist enjoyed a multifaceted career as a costume and set designer; he is especially renowned for the fabulous covers he created for Harper’s Bazaar magazine from 1915-1936. The Met houses an important collection of Erté’s original gouaches. To learn more about the artwork that inspired this Met Store product, read our blog here.
