Earrings, 2014

This is a Earrings.

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from FD Gallery Collection as part of Beauty—Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial.

It is dated 2014. Its medium is white gold, cameos, diamonds.

These delicate cameo earrings were handcrafted in the atelier of Hemmerle, a firm with a long tradition of jewelry-making. In 1895, Hemmerle was appointed purveyor to the Royal Bavarian Court. In 1995, Stefan Hemmerle took control of the firm with his wife, Sylveli. In 2006, they were joined by their son, Christian, and his wife, Yasmin. Nature is an endless source of inspiration. The design of the jewelry is a collaborative process for the family and their workshop. Each piece is shaped through iterative sketches—some taking up to five hundred hours to complete.
