Erté Deco Phoenix Necklace from The Met Museum


This sinuous statement necklace brings to life an original illustration by Romain de Tirtoff (French, born Russia, 1892-1990), better known as Erté. The necklace’s theatrical double-phoenix design is crafted in polished and textured 22K gold plate that has been enhanced with hand-applied black enamel and sparkling Swarovski® crystals. 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.
