Paloma Picasso has launched her latest collection for Tiffany, a group of earrings, pendants and bracelets she's calling Zellige, and which employ age-old mosaic techniques. Picasso told The Canadian Press she was inspired by the tiled fountain at her Marrakech home, and that, to her, "Jewelry is about timelessness. A piece of jewelry is here to stay much longer than a dress or gown."
She also recognized that jewelry is perhaps as much about the wearer as the piece itself. "A lot of emotion is attached to jewelry. It's meant to be part of someone's life," she said.
The Zellige pendant shown above (on black cord) is 18k gold and retails for $1,950.
