The clips are designed in a stylized wing motif. Signed box, ''Paris Arnold Ostertag''. The firm of Ostertag, founded in the 1920''s by Swiss-born, Arnold Ostertag (1883 – c.1940) is said to have created objects that rivaled the creations of the more celebrated houses of Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, and Boucheron. The Ostertag Maison was located in Paris, at number 16 Place Vendôme, near other important jewelry houses of the day. During the 1920s and 1930s, Ostertag was especially known for jewelry and objets d''art based on Asian and Indian designs. One style, known as Tutti Frutti, popular from the early 1920s to the late 1930s, combined influences from Islamic religious architecture and so-called Hindu or Indian styles. Emeralds, carved rubies, and sapphires – often imported from worldwide locations – were interspersed with diamonds. The jewels were crafted into unique pieces using the highest known techniques of the day and arranged into flowers and leaves, studded with berries and fruit. Many of the creations were purchased by an elite clientele that ranged from empresses, kings, and dukes to celebrities. Ostert ... ag was among the renowned Parisian jewelers, led by Cartier and Mauboussin, that were invited to commission masterpieces in collaboration with other respected and well-known jewelry and timepiece houses of the day. Ostertag''s objets d''art and decorative clocks made by the revered clockmaker, George Verger, are jeweled works of art. In 1929 Ostertag exhibited jewelry and objets d''art at the Musée Galliera. Ostertag''s Paris shop continued until late 1939, when he left for America, where he died around 1940. His biographers, Proddow and Healy, write that Ostertag regularly visited America in years between World Wars I and II. They write that he would come to New York in mid-October, spend two months in Los Angeles, then visit Florida, and return to Paris via Cannes at Easter. After two months in Paris, he spent July in Deauville, August in the south of France, and September in Biarritz. At the onset of World War II, Maison Ostertag closed its doors forever. Discussed in Art Deco Jewelry by Sylvie Raulet, Rizzoli, 1985.

His pieces were worn by numerous film stars on- and off-screen, from the 1940''s through the 1960''s. The distinctive Ruser style involved skillfully-sculpted children and pearl-winged angels, often seated on clouds of freshwater pearls and crowned with halos of tiny seed pearls, as well as less whimsical jewelry. He closed the doors to his shop in 1969, whereupon the property was bought by Van Cleef and Arpels, which remains in the same location on Rodeo Drive today.

Van Cleef & Arpels Chevalerie Gold Earrings

A pair of French 18 karat textured gold "Chevalerie" earrings by Van Cleef & Arpels. The pendant hoop earrings designed with a complex geometric patterning that lends them significant visual interest. Circa 1972. Together with a letter of authenticity from Van Cleef & Arpels dated 14 February 2019. In the 1970s, Van Cleef & Arpels moved away from the gem-studded opulence of the post-war years and instead focused their efforts on creating dynamic forms out of precious metals. Inspired by the moon landing, simple, forms such as these earrings were modeled so as to appear "cratered." Important, too, as an influence was kinetic art, inspiring a new dynamism and sense of movement and patterning of the famed firm''s designs, strongly represented in these earrings. Voluminous but not overly heavy, the earpendants, with their unusual surface texture, represent a subtly different interpretation of the classic hoop design.
