A French jeweller born in 1905, Pierre Sterlé started his career in 1934, imposing since the very beginning a peculiar style. All in movement, the Sterlé jewels were soon to become unmistakeable among the others by their refined , streamlined shapes and very stylish look. He has used all the figurative themes from the 40’s to the 60’s such as birds, stars or shells and made them his own.
Working with gold as no-one before, he is the creator of the “fil d’ange” (angel wire), sort of gold braid that he has often used on his bird brooches, giving them an unrivaled fluidity.
More creator than manager, the firm remained open until he sold his creations to Chaumet in 1976, for which he become an artistic advisor until his death in 1978.
Sterlé has remained his whole life a man of fantastic elegance, beloved by all his clients who always recognized in him an artist of the Style.
