Beauty in a bottle from famed Tiffany & Co. jewelry designer, Elsa Peretti.
Elsa Peretti’s Bottle pendants are handcrafted in new shapes, with precious metals and gemstones, to celebrate warm-weather with a fresh, natural style. In addition to the classic open Bottle pendant, the new pendants include round designs in sterling silver or 18 karat gold, and square and jug shapes in sterling silver. Other Bottle shapes reflect Elsa Peretti’s love of gemstones with new hand-carved stoppers in turquoise, lapis lazuli or black jade.
The new bottle-shaped pendants were inspired by Peretti’s visits to Portofino, Italy, in the 1960s and the beautiful women she saw there, each with a gardenia in their hand. Elsa Peretti wished to create a bottle that would keep the flower alive and sketched a design based on bottles from antiquity. The organic quality of this initial sketch would become an enduring signature of her jewelry, defining her Bottle pendants with a sculptural, tactile beauty.
