Pierre Sterlé

Rare, collectible designs of remarkable fluidity.

For socialites and royalty, by appointment only—those were the rules at the upstairs atelier Pierre Sterlé opened in 1943 near the Place Vendôme. The designer manipulated gold like no other jeweler, achieving remarkable fluidity in gemstone birds that appear to fly and leaves that seem to flutter. Sterlé’s works from the ’40s and ’50s best demonstrate this mastery, with gold wire weaved and knotted to create the supple strands he called “angel wire.” His diamond and platinum jewels are also a triumph of design and engineering, with enchanting diamond ribbons and tassels.
