Catalogue Note

From the height of the radio era to the early days of television, perhaps no comedian was better known than Jack Benny. For over 40 years, he delighted audiences across the media spectrum, starting with the Jack Benny Program, a weekly radio show that ran from 1932 until 1955, before continuing on as a television program for another 10 years. Benny’s comedic timing, along with a stable of original characters, made him a revered Hollywood star across the generations. He and his wife, Mary Livingstone, were legends of their day, and these jewels serve as a lasting tribute to their relationship. Benny was a frequent customer of Van Cleef & Arpels, where he purchased these two pairs of earrings, and they have remained in the family since they were originally bought.
