|Sterle, 1970's diamond brooch|
The brooch above is probably one of the last pieces made by Pierre Sterle during the 1970's (at least signed with his name and not by Chaumet). It will be auctioned by Sotheby's Geneva on may 14th.
Pierre Sterle was a very special jeweller. Not an artist but a socialite, he earned his well deserved reputation due to his good taste, selecting beautiful and well rounded designs and insisting on having them executed only with the finest stones.
