Elsa Peretti for Tiffany 1981
18ct Yellow Gold Doughnut Bangle by Elsa Peretti for Tiffany & Co.
An iconic doughnut bangle designed by Elsa Peretti for Tiffancy & Co. 1981, the bold sleek bangle of oval shape formed of a complete rounded ring of highly polished 18ct gold almost an inch wide and over half an inch thick, a generous voluptuous jewel with elegant contours and an easy to slip on and off design. From her very first jewellery design, a silver pendant shaped like a classical amphora which was inspired by an old vase through to her final collection for Tiffany & Co. Elsa Peretti designed and made jewellery that she wanted to wear herself. Endlessly inspired by the natural world and obsessed with creating pared back, tactile pieces, Vogue magazine described her jewellery as “carved, pure—irresistibly touchable—it has been called jewellery as sculpture, sculpture as jewellery, and the most sensuous jewellery in the world.” This gorgeous bangle epitomises her work, pieces that are characterised by fluid forms, tactile shapes and a relaxed style that still feels modern today.
