Extra information: Palomo Picasso: “My jewelry is about a joy for life and a timeless beauty.”
Born in Paris to Pablo Picasso and Françoise Gilot, Paloma Picasso is a true artist in her own right, celebrated for a boldly original style defined by brilliant colored gemstones. She started making jewelry as a teenager. Soon she was styling avant-garde theater productions and designing fashion jewelry for legendary couturier Yves Saint Laurent.
In 1979, Picasso was invited by Tiffany design director John Loring to create a table setting for one of Tiffany’s exhibitions. A year later, the designer’s first exclusive collection of jewelry was introduced at Tiffany. (From:www.tiffany.com)
