DescriptionAfter 1907, “art jewelry” produced by Louis C. Tiffany (American, 1848–1933) was supervised by jeweler Julia Munson (American, 1875–1971). Only a few hundred pieces of art jewelry were made, notable for its innovative use of semiprecious stones. We have adapted a group of exquisitely crafted pieces (ca. 1910–15) for our stunning necklace.

Art HistoryLouis Comfort Tiffany (American, 1848-1933) began his career as a painter, but moved quickly to interior decoration and leaded-glass windows, creating revolutionary types of opalescent glass that radiated especially deep vibrant hues. Using variations in color and thickness of glass, he achieved pictorial effects of unsurpassed subtlety and beauty. In addition to stained- glass windows and lighting fixtures, his studios also made pottery, furniture, textiles, jewelry, and works in bronze and enamel.
