In original retailer’s case

Delicate petals of 14k gold with an 18k gold wash, hammered to a fragile, paper like thinness, are lined up by size on a golden chain and followed by a cluster of white freshwater pearls dangling merrily at the end of the detachable part of the earrings which can also be worn as studs adorned with a white akoya pearl.
Creator of this unique pair of earrings, which come in their original retailer’s case of jeweller Schott in Nuremberg, Germany, is Wolfgang Zipp (1935 - ), master goldsmith and jewellery designer with his own workshop in Pforzheim, Germany.
During the 1980s Wolfgang Zipp worked as a teacher for goldsmithing and jewellery design at Staatliche Zeichenakademie Hanau and at Werkkunstschule Pforzheim.
Among his numerous awards are the Cellini Prize (1967), the De-Beers-Award ‘Diamonds today’ (1979) and the State Prize of Baden-Wurttemberg (1980).
His works are part of public and private collections.
