Yves Saint Laurent By Robert Goossens Large Heart-Shaped Chartreuse Faceted Resin Clip On Earrings In Original Box featuring a beautiful large pair of 1984 green/yellow faceted resin clip on earrings in the shape of hearts.  This gorgeous pair of earrings are signed 'Made In France' on the gold plated textured reverse and the clips are signed in the iconic vertical 'YSL'.  Softly faceted, they catch the light beautifully, casting the intense yellow and green shades of chartreuse and they measure 3.3cm tall and 3.5cm at their widest point and they are 1cm deep.  Together they weigh 33.3g and they come in their original box with original blank price tag.  Overall excellent condition, superficial wear on close inspection, commensurate with age.  A beautiful piece of Goossens history to treasure.

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 arguably the greatest costume jewellery designer of all time.

This beautiful piece of jewellery began its journey many years ago and may have some very minor imperfections collected along its travels. By purchasing this piece you will investing in a brand new chapter of its story as well as making a positively conscious choice on sustainable fashion. Vintage jewellery for the beautiful you on our beautiful planet.
