Mouth And Pearl Earring, from Infinity Spring / Summer 2013 collection, 2012
This single earring employs iconic shapes of facial features to create jewelry that is both unexpected and sophisticated. A graceful gold curve with a pearl end has been lined with diamonds, and supports a pair of lips filled with rubies. The lips appear to be both anchored and suspended from the wearer’s ear. Delettrez is a fourth-generation member of the Fendi family.
