|A fabulous piece of wearable art from one of the icons of the modernist jewelry movement; some of his pieces are in the collection of the Museum of Arts & Design in New York. Ed Wiener worked largely in silver until the 1950s when he branched out into gold and precious jewels. Among his clients were Louise Nevelson, the sculptor and Martha Graham, the dancer. A life long New Yorker, he had his final studio and store on Fifth Avenue which is where this was purchased in the early 1970s. This 18kt pendant/brooch takes the form of a textured open disk with mixed cut sapphires, emeralds and colorful semi-precious gems. Accompanied by a textured 23" chain which is wearable on its own, as well. 54.7 dwt with chain (85.0 grams). Circa 1973 2 1/4" by 2 3/4" x 1/16"|
