In 1951, Tony Duquette, became the first American jeweler to be honored by holding a solo exhibit of his work at the Louvre. Tony became famous for his whimsical designs and unusual use of gemstones. After the exhibit, he was commissioned by The Duke of Windsor to create a jewel for The Duchess. He created a fantastic wreath necklace made up of gold leaves, citrines, tourmaline, peridots, and mabe pearls. Before the necklace was delivered to the Windsor’s, Duquette and his wife were drawn by artist Siegfried Reinhardt, and his wife proudly wore this piece(Picture 2). After the piece was sold, Duquette’s business partner, Hutton Wilkinson, reported it was The Duchess’s favorite piece for an entire social season. It was sold at auction after her death.
