Necklace, from Roll in Stone Fall / Winter 2011 collection

This is a necklace. It was designed by Delfina Delettrez.

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

It is dated 2011. Its medium is silver, baroque pearls, freshwater pearls, enamel drops.

The curved silver plate of this necklace wraps around the front half of the wearer’s neck, providing a stunning platform for freshwater pearls. The pearls are fixed into organically shaped openings cut into the plate. Each cut shape has been outlined in enamel drops to create an effect that is both unexpected and harmonious. Delettrez is a fourth-generation member of the Fendi family.
