At the opening reception for Cartier & Aldo Cipullo
, New York City in the '70s, I had the privilege of talking to Alfred Durante, the Cartier designer who created Elizabeth Taylor
's Peregrina Pearl necklace
and Taylor-Burton Diamond
necklace. He told me the gems for both jewels were designed to highlight the icon’s décolletage. When I saw this piece at Jennifer Fisher, I thought it would be a modern way to echo Taylor's sexy jewelry stylings.
