Tiffany & Co. announced new special-edition designs of Elsa Peretti’s Bone cuff to celebrate the icon’s 50th anniversary and Peretti’s love of color. Powerfully feminine with an effortless ease, this groundbreaking design was introduced in the 1970s and showcases the ergonomic sensuality that informs Peretti’s jewelry. Launching in June 2020, and reimagined in vibrant red, blue and green hues with a “special edition” inscription, the Bone cuff is as artful as it is beautiful. Carved stone styles are a nod to the sublime beauty that Peretti finds in nature, featuring sterling silver with black jade, sterling silver with turquoise and 18k yellow gold with green jade to follow in September 2020.
Her trailblazing craftsmanship is exemplified in the way that the Bone cuff seamlessly contours to the wrist, designed specifically for the right and left wrists, and to be worn as a pair, becoming one with the body. A testament to her curiosity and creativity, the tactile, sculptural form of the cuff is drawn from her visits as a young girl to the crypt of a 17th century Capuchin church in Rome and her time spent in Barcelona inspired by Antonio Gaudí’s Casa Mila.
“I have always been interested in the mechanics and its feel: every jewelry piece should be captivating and comfortable to wear,” says Elsa Peretti.
The Bone cuff holds an empowering effect when worn, and is a symbol of strength and grace. Peretti’s aesthetic embodies the modern independent woman and her unique style sensibility. Her designs are revered by major museums around the world, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the British Museum in London. Peretti is considered one of the most important and collected designers of our time.
