This surreal necklace by Elsa Schiaparelli in Rhodoïd, with iridescent metal insects scuttling across its surface, has just been sold for 85,000 euros– 5 times its estimate (15-20,000 euros) at the Quidam de Revel sale at Sotheby’s in Paris. Designed in 1938 for the “Pagan collection” inspired by the Quattrocento painter Sandro Botticelli, it set the world record for a necklace by this designer. An identical model once owned by Millicent Rogers is now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
