Elsa Peretti Jewelry for Halston

5 years before joining Tiffany, Elsa Peretti began her jewelry career by designing pieces for Halston and Georgio di Sant'Angelo in 1969. Halston had just started out on his own in 1968 and had become friends with Peretti when she worked as a model.

Her first piece of jewelry was a small bottle suspended from a chain for Sant'Angelo. It had no stopper and was meant to hold a flower. But it was her work with Halston that put Peretti on the map. Halston's minimalistic designs were the perfect background for Peretti's sculptural pieces.

Absolutely stunning and completely timeless. I hadn't realized she worked with Halston and de Sant'Angelo but in retrospect you're right, the collaborations make perfect sense.

Actually, Elsa's first piece was the teardrop pendant, in 1969.
