Louis' exposure to the highly skilled and experienced craftsmen at Tiffany & Co, alongside with his artistic side and captivation for nature, marked the beginning of a series of jewels influenced by the European Art Nouveau and Arts and Crafts movements focusing on beauty rather than intrinsic value favouring stones such as opals, moonstones and turquoise.
The Yogo Gulch sapphires from Montana were frequently used after its introduction in the late 19th century. Numerous variations of moonstone and Yogo Gulch sapphires set in platinum were produced in Tiffany’s designs.
This necklace signed Tiffany & Co, is believe to be produced post-1907, as Louis’s early pieces does not bear a signature. In 1907 Louis’s moved his ‘Tiffany Art Jewellery’ operation in its entirety to his late father’s firm Tiffany & Co, where all markings on pieces were consistent. It is likely that Louis collaborated with his designer Meta Overbeck on this necklace, as the icy colour combinations being one of her favourites.
