This is a fantastic pair from the world renowned designer ERTE (a Russian artist named Roman de Tirtoff). The famed fashion and stage designer, ERTE was born in 1892 to a wealthy family in St. Petersburg , Russia. ERTE is considered by many as the epitome of flamboyance in twentieth century art and design. ERTE’s desire to create jewelry arose from his life-long dedication to beautifying women through the genius of his designs. He envisioned his jewelry as works of art, but unlike works created by other artists, his would be designed to be worn. As a result, he considered these works "Art to Wear."
