10 of the Most Iconic Jewelry Pieces by Elsa Peretti

Italian Jewelry designer, Elsa Peretti, was known for her iconic and minimalistic jewelry pieces. The designer, who was born in 1940, started her journey as a jewelry designer at the age of 34 in 1974 working at Tiffany and Co. Her jewelry quickly became popularized and her pieces made up 10 percent of the company’s sales. Designing her jewelry using mostly diamonds, precious metals, and sterling silver, Peretti created iconic pieces that would someday be on display at museums like the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Halston: Glamorous Photos of the Real — and Really Iconic — Elsa Peretti

In the early days of his career, fashion designer Halston developed a close relationship with another one of the greats: Elsa Peretti, the iconic Italian jewelry designer. In Ryan Murphy's Halston, Rebecca Dayan portrays the legendary jeweler, who first came up in the fashion world as one of Halston's models and best friends in the Studio 54 disco scene. Peretti collaborated with Halston extensively, helping him design his first iconic perfume bottle and creating trinkets for him. Eventually, Tiffany & Co. discovered her work and gave her the position of an in-house designer — not too long later, her rapport with Halston unfortunately broke down, as we see on the miniseries.

Elsa Peretti Wasn’t Afraid to Play with Fire

——— After years of playing mannequin as a “Halstonette,” Elsa Peretti’s hobby of jewelry-making took a turn when the pieces she designed for Halston and other brands grew a cult following. As Ricky Clifton, the renowned decorator and Peretti’s dear friend, told us, “[Her aesthetic] was a combination of emotion and a cerebral way of designing. It was interesting to see how her ideas grew from something that most people wouldn’t even notice.” An early champion of her work, Halston set up a meeting for Peretti with Tiffany & Co. that resulted in a lucrative deal for his former muse.
