The pendant hoop earrings designed with a complex geometric patterning that lends them significant visual interest. Circa 1972.

In the 1970s, Van Cleef & Arpels moved away from the gem-studded opulence of the post-war years and instead focused their efforts on creating dynamic forms out of precious metals. Inspired by the moon landing, simple, forms such as these earrings were modeled so as to appear "cratered." Important, too, as an influence was kinetic art, inspiring a new dynamism and sense of movement and patterning of the famed firm''s designs, strongly represented in these earrings. Voluminous but not overly heavy, the earpendants, with their unusual surface texture, represent a subtly different interpretation of the classic hoop design.
