A gorgeous pair of 1980's Yves Saint Laurent highly collectible clip on earrings. The gold tone reverse is excellent and the overall condition is Very Good. A classic piece 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 arguably the greatest costume jewellery designer of all time.

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.
