If you love the way luxurious feels this is the piece for you....REASONABLE OFFERS ACCEPTED. Pierre Sterlé (1905–1978) was a French jeweller, known as the 'couturier of jewellery'. Considered during his lifetime to have been an inspired innovator, he reached his apogee in the 1940s and 50's. His work with precious stones and metal - often inspired by nature - still commands strong interest at auction. His reputation was cemented when he won the De Beers Diamond Award, a major achievement in the jewellery profession, and which he won for three consecutive years, in 1953, 1954 and 1955.
It was in 1955 that Sterlé began to have his first financial difficulties. The launch of his two perfumes, Huit-huit and 2 Diam, the only ones he created, were a financial disaster. He had refused, as usual, to take into account the cost of manufacture, and as a result was forced to sell the product for below the cost price. To balance the books, he was required to separate his collection of paintings, and property north of Paris.
In 1966 he was the first jeweller invited to the Antique Dealers Biennale. He presented a life-sized Temple of Love, supported by pearl-encrusted dolphins. An exposed glass pyramid showed, on trays of white coral, a collection of jewellery inspired by nature - birds, flowers, marine life, which caused a sensation.
