Our two-tone drop earrings celebrate a timeless Art Deco design by Romain de Tirtoff (French, born Russia, 1892-1990), better known as Erté. Crafted in contrasting 18K gold plate and rhodium plate, these linear earrings are adorned with 50 glittering Swarovski® crystals-a sleek, dramatic pair that will enhance your look. The artist enjoyed a multifaceted career as a costume and set designer; he is especially renowned for the fabulous covers he created for Harper’s Bazaar magazine from 1915-1936. The Met houses an important collection of Erté’s original gouaches. To learn more about the artwork that inspired this Met Store product, read our blog here.
