Erté Zizi Earrings from The Met Museum


These stylish openwork earrings were named for French ballet dancer Zizi Jeanmaire. The pair evoke the Art Deco work of Romain de Tirtoff (French, born Russia, 1892-1990), better known as Erté. Their bi-color fan design showcases satin-finish 18K gold plate and rhodium plate with 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. To learn more about the artwork that inspired this Met Store product, read our blog here.
