    Sterlé: Parisian Pierre Sterlé (1905-1978) grew up in the jewelry business. In 1934, he opened his own business, creating jewelry for such famed houses as Boucheron and Chaumet. Sterlé’s popularity peaked in the 1940s and 1950s. He was a major award winning designer notable for his innovative approach to design using baguette-cut diamonds and colored gemstones in sweeping, curling lines. His love of nature played out in his favorite motifs: birds, flowers, leaves, arrows, feathers and bows. Aside from the sheer beauty and grace of Sterle’s work, his greatest contribution to the jewelry industry was the invention of a gold plaiting technique called Til d’ange in 1957, permitting the creation of fringes, manes, tails, and flower accents. Chaumet purchased the firm from Sterlé in 1976.
