Designed by Paloma Picasso for Tiffany & Co., these 18k gold spiral earrings are a highly sought-after retired shape. The earrings are graceful spirals of 18k gold that dangle in a narrow, elongated shape. The exterior of the spirals have a glossy polish, while the interior is an unpolished matte gold for an absolutely stunning effect. Part of the Venezia collection, the spirals are inspired by the glowing lampposts of Italy. The earrings are a perfect torpedo shape that elongate the neck as they dangle elegantly alongside it.
Paloma Picasso is a French fashion designer and the daughter of Pablo Picasso. She began her career as a costume designer in Paris in 1968, and began designing for Tiffany & Co. in 1980. She is described as having “a gift for finding beauty in unexpected places, from subway grates to an olive leaf” and her iconic designs are “imbued with an exuberant originality.”
The earrings are marked “T & Co.” “Italy” “750” and “Paloma Picasso” with a copyright. Each earring measures 1/4” x 1 5/8”. Combined, the earrings weigh 3.72 grams. They come in a navy blue Tiffany & Co. box.
For pierced ears.
