Named for New Yorks legendary Ziegfeld Theatre, a model of Art Deco architecture that opened in 1927, the jewellery captures the periods cool elegance with freshwater cultured pears, black onyx and sterling silver.

Ropes of luxurious pearls were a signature of 1920’s fashion. Tiffany emulates it with an elongated tassel necklace and drop earrings of luminous pears that move with the ease of a white satin gown. A sterling silver pendent features a daily motif, centred with cushion-cut black onyx, and is suspended from a chain accented with black onyx beads and pears.

In addition, Tiffany creates a heart shaped locket of sterling silver embellished with a daisy, a romantic symbol of the period.
