Erté Zizi Statement Necklace from The Met Museum


This thoroughly dramatic statement necklace takes its fanciful name from French ballet dancer Zizi Jeanmaire. The openwork fan design is based on the Art Deco work of Romain de Tirtoff (French, born Russia, 1892-1990), better known as Erté. The necklace’s stunning two-tone design showcases satin-finish 18K gold plate and rhodium plate with more than 100 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.
