My object is to show the jeweler's art in true perspective - where the design and craftsmanship are to be valued above the material worth of the gems.' Dalí, 'A Study of His Art-in-Jewels'.

After working with the jeweller Fulco di Verdura, Dali started working with Alemany and Ertman in 1949 producing some of his most famous jewels such as the melted watch from The Persistence of Memory (1931), realised as a brooch; and the ruby and pearl lips inspired by the actress Mae West.
