Tiffany and Co. Founded in 1837 by Charles Lewis Tiffany, the house has become one of the most famous jewelers in the world, with its iconic blue box. In 1878 the company acquired the 287.42 diamond now known as the Tiffany Diamond from South Africa. This stone was worn by Audrey Hepburn in a necklace in the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s in 1961. Tiffany & Co named Kunzite in 1902, Morganite in 1910, Tanzanite in the 1960s and Tsavorite in 1974. The house has collaborated with designers including Jean Schlumberger and Donald Claflin ( since 1955), Paloma Picasso ( since 1980) and Elsa Perreti( since 1974) and has been worn by royalty throughout the world.

Moonstone Often described as “glowing like the moon”, this variety of orthoclase feldspar has this quality, called adularescence, caused by light scattering between its layers. Moonstones were particularly popular during the Art Nouveau period and are considered hallmarks of both work by Tiffany and Co. as well as Rene Lalique during that period. Moonstone is a June birthstone.

Cabochon A cabochon is a gem which has been shaped and polished but not faceted, typically with a domed top and flat bottom. Cabochons are often cut for opaque stones, for softer translucent gems as well as to highlight phenomenon such as asterism “star” and chatoyancy “cat’s eye”, as these would not show in faceted stones. The 'sugarloaf' cabochon cut features a 4-sided pyramid shape.

Sapphire Blue sapphire is a variety of corundum, a mineral species that also includes ruby. Sapphires can be blue, violet, green, yellow, orange, pink, purple, multicolored as well as color change, most often going from blue to purple, as well as gray, black, or brown. Blue sapphire can have both green and violet undertones, as well as the more desirable pure blue. Trace elements of iron or titanium cause sapphire’s blue color, with iron resulting in an inky, darker tone than the often vivid blue resulting from titanium. When jewelers refer to sapphire without specifying color, this refers to blue sapphire. Sapphire is the September birthstone and the stone of the 5th and 45th wedding anniversaries.

Pear Shape The pear shape, also known as teardrop shape, dates back to 1475 when Lodewyck van Bercken invented both the diamond polishing wheel and the pear shape that it enabled. Ideal pear shape symmetry is a length to width ratio of 1.5:1. In a ring, pear cuts can elongate the appearance of the finger, and in earrings, pear cuts can give the appearance of water droplets or movement. This shape holds more color than a round and is typically faceted in the brilliant style to provide maximum sparkle.

Unique Elements
The moonstones in these wonderful art deco earrings show strong blue adularescence, and highlight the strength of the house in intricate Art Nouveau work.
