Sterlé or the art of movement

Description

Very beautiful Pierre Sterlé ring featuring a yellow gold knot entirely set with brilliant-cut diamonds. This is a French work from the 1970s. The ring is signed Sterlé Paris and numbered.

Of great finesse, a unique ring whose gold work is particularly mastered with the impression that the gold and diamond foliage has been tied directly to your finger.

Why did Françoise choose it?

Françoise likes to highlight unjustly forgotten or little-known creators. Pierre Sterlé's creations made her dream. She found in these creations a new way of imprinting movement in a jewelry form thanks to exceptional technicality around gold. A constant search for movement. Gold is worked as a material of indescribable lightness, braiding threads or engraving gold plates: fabrics, braids, chains or veils.

History

Born in 1905, Pierre Sterlé quickly turned to jewelry. It was in the workshop of his uncle, Georges Pinçon, that he learned the trade. He established himself as a “jeweler-manufacturer” in 1934 in collaboration with the designer Alexander Diringer. From the beginning, Sterlé developed his own creations and collaborated for numerous Maisons on Place Vendôme, particularly after the departure of his designer in 1942.

Although Sterlé did not draw himself, he was the creator and his pieces achieved their greatest success during the 1940s and 1950s.

From the 1960s, the designer found himself in financial difficulty. Pierre Sterlé was forced to sell his workshop and his stocks. Maison Chaumet bought his funds in 1976 and appointed him as its new creator. The jeweler held this position for two years, until his death in 1978. He worked in collaboration with a designer, Béatrice de Plinval.

Referred to by his contemporaries as the “jewellery couturier”, Sterlé managed to make an impression through his creations, which reflected the technical mastery and finesse that he knew how to demonstrate. He is one of those masters in the art of handling and transforming gold, a skill that gives it great fluidity.
