This delicate Y-necklace is based on the Art Deco work of Romain de Tirtoff (French, born Russia, 1892-1990), better known as Erté. The openwork fan design is named for French ballet dancer Zizi Jeanmaire. The necklace’s two-tone 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.
