Esther Lewittes is one of the well-known mid-century studio jewelers. She studied design at the Art Students League in New York and jewelry-making with a staff jeweler at Cartier. She initially started selling her jewelry at Georg Jensen and later, after she moved to Los Angeles, at her own gallery.
These earrings are a great example of her work and are beautifully crafted of heavy sterling silver. They are a great example of how mid-century modernist design is timeless and looks fantastic worn with today's fashions.
