Arts and Crafts Enamel Drop Earrings from The Met Museum


Because of its deep color, lapis lazuli was a stone that Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 1848-1933), one of America’s most noted decorative artists at the turn of the 20th century, incorporated into many of his works. Our exquisite earrings have been adapted from a group of finely crafted pieces (ca. 1910-15) lapis lazuli. 1907, art jewelry designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany was made at the workshops of Tiffany & Co, where production was supervised by jeweler Julia Munson. Only a few hundred pieces of art jewelry were made under Louis C. Tiffany, which were notable for the innovative use of semiprecious stones. Produced in cooperation with The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, Winter Park, Florida
