About Hermes

Thierry Hermès, born in 1801, was the son of an innkeeper and the godson of a master suede worker. He came to Paris in 1928 to marry and there he worked for coach makers and wholesalers, supplying them with bridles and harnesses made in his workshop. Since then, horses and anything to do with them have remained in the heritage of the company. Hermes began making jewelry in the 1950s and its fine jewelry collections from the 1970s included many distinctive styles that remain fashionable today. As one of the most luxurious brands in the world, Hermès has managed to retain its standards for quality - the house routinely racks up names on waiting lists for Birkin and Kelly handbags as well as jewelry and watches.

About The 1970s

The 1970s reflected a continuation of the trends that began in the 1960s – long necklaces, medallion pendants, bangle bracelets and oversized earrings were all in fashion. Gold still ruled, and the favored gemstones of the day were darker and more natural in color in shades of burgundy, deep blue and purple. Indian influences become more prevalent, perhaps inspired by the Beatles journeys. By the end of the decade, the influence of the punk scene started to influence jewelers, who introduced motifs such as safety pins, spikes and studs.
