    After the disappearance of his father in World War I, Pierre Sterle learned jewelry-making from his uncle. In addition to opening an atelier in Paris in 1934, he also did work for many prestigious jewelry houses such as Boucheron, Ostertag and Chaumet. His jewelry designs of the late 1940s and early 1950s used supple, braided and twisted gold ropes, festooned and often hung with fringes in the “Passemeterie” style as seen in the present lot.
