Elsa Peretti

One of the classic pieces in Carine Roitfeld's jewelry box is the Elsa Peretti bottle pendant by Tiffany & Co. The understated simplicity of the piece is completely in line with Carine’s own fashion sensibility, which tends toward an undone insouciance. She is pictured below wearing Peretti's creation with a white Givenchy gown and Alaïa shoes at Cannes in 2009. Peretti describes her vision behind the pendant that Carine wears: "Once I was in Portofino and I met all those beautiful women that were wearing Pucci's dresses and had a gardenia in their hand. That was the flash that made me think to realize something to keep the flower fresh and alive, therefore the little bottle came to the light...."

Born in Florence, Peretti worked as both a designer and model in Rome prior to moving to New York during the 1960s, where she collaborated with a number of designers, including Halston and Oscar de la Renta, before finally committing exclusively to creating fine jewelry for Tiffany in 1974. Peretti’s signature designs continue to garner praise for her organic, sensuously sculptural aesthetic which melds the fluid elements of nature with the precision of impeccable craftsmanship. For a closer look at her work, view this video of Peretti's bottle pendant.
