Item Description: "Wolfgang Zipp Long Convertible Modernist Pearl Gold Earrings"

Wolfgang Zipp: Unique Long Convertible Modernist Pearl Gold Earrings
14K yellow gold, akoya pearls, cultured freshwater pearls
L 6.2 cm, W approx. 1.6 cm; studs 1.15 cm to 0.9 cm
Marks: ‘585’ for 14k gold; ‘SCHOTT’ (retailer’s mark); maker’s mark of Wolfgang Zipp
Germany, 1960s – 1970s
In original retailer’s case

Delicate petals of 14k gold with an 18k gold wash, hammered to a fragile though strong, paper like thinness, are linked by size into the elements of 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, scholar of Reinhold Reiling and Karl Schollmayer, worked as a teacher for goldsmithing and jewellery design at Staatliche Zeichenakademie Hanau and at Staatliche Kunst- und Werkschule Pforzheim (later Pforzheim University of Design).
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.
