Description: AN BLUE TOPAZ INTAGLIO RING BY BARRY KIESELSTEIN-CORD, 1986The collet-set oval topaz intaglio engraved with a female figure, within a polished mount of asymmetrical tapered design, mounted in 18K gold, signed Kieselstein Cord, 1986, ring size P½Kieselstein-Cord is an international award winning luxury brand founded by American designer and artist Barry Kieselstein-Cord in 1972. His mission was to create a luxury company, based on the precedence of traditional French ateliers combined with a unique, contemporary vision. It was a vision that would take highly original and exquisitely handmade products and distribute them through America’s leading retailers of the time, Saks Fifth Avenue, Henri Bendel and Bonwit Teller. His products include fine jewellery, sterling silver jewellery along with leather goods such as handbags and home furnishings. This newfound freedom allowed for greater variety and experimentation of production and it was at this time that the lavish use of gold and semi-precious stones emerged in Kieselstein-Cord’s work. The success of these products paved the way for the renowned Pompeii and Borgia collections. His rising fame and reputation amongst the fashion elite of New York allowed him to reach a wider and more international audience.
