A beautiful vintage design in superb condition by the inimitable 'Monsieur Bijou', Robert Goossens.

The son of a foundry worker, Robert Goossens was born in Paris, France in 1927. He served a jewellery apprenticeship at a young age, and went on to become an exceptional jewellery designer, earning himself the moniker Monsieur Bijou during his career-defining collaboration with Coco Chanel. Goossens was well known for his work for Chanel, but he also worked regularly for Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior, Balenciaga as well as other prominent design houses. His love of paintings and artefacts in Paris museums heavily influenced his work, which was mostly inspired by Maltese, Byzantine and Renaissance design. Robert Goossens died in 2016 at the age of 88, and in many people's view, is the greatest costume jewellery designer of all time.
