Jewelry Designer Elsa Peretti's Profound Design Legacy

Elsa Peretti, one of the most successful and influential jewelry designers of the past century, died March 18 at the age of 80 When Tiffany & Co., the jeweler Peretti became synonymous with, reissued nine of her old designs in October 2020, the designer said in a statement, "I don't have the feeling that I need to add a lot to my collection, because I have an incredibly wide range of things." Tiffany currently retails over 800 Elsa Peretti SKUs, and in 2019, the company estimated that it sold an object designed by Peretti once every minute "One may think of Elsa as being strong, but when you really look at her designs you really see something nurturing and soulfully deep," says Gus Davis, president of New York City estate jewelry firm Camilla Dietz Bergeron.

Tiffany & Co declined to comment for this article but in a prepared statement said, "Elsa was responsible for a revolution in the world of jewelry design Her collections of organic, sensual forms have inspired generations.

Elsa explored nature with the acumen of a scientist and the vision of a sculptor." Peretti was inspired to design her first piece of jewelry-a silver bud vase hanging from a leather cord-by an item she picked up at a flea market When Tiffany tapped Peretti to design a silver collection for the house in 1974, the brand hadn't carried silver for a quarter century. .
