Holiday Gifts - Jewels 1975

More holiday jewels, this time from 1975.

Bulgari

Elsa Peretti for Tiffany
Elsa Peretti had just joined Tiffany the previous year, and the company is already featuring her designs in full page advertisements in 1975. Interesting to note that the ad states these earrings are for pierced ears, which were becoming very popular with younger women. But Tiffany placates it's traditional buyers by pointing out that you can also wear this pierced earring as a pin.

Van Cleef & Arpels cabochon emeralds and diamonds set in 18k gold.

Piaget diamond and lapis lazuli watch set in 18k gold.

Gorgeous...I just wish that I could get my hands on some of these pieces, especially the Bvlgari.

That's same Bvlgari set as in the B&W ad you recently posted, isn't it? Loved the shape in the first but MY GOD how amazing in color. Thanks for posting.

Vix, they do look very similar, but they're not the same. I agree, I prefer the ads in color.
