Tiffany Elsa Peretti pendant
Sterling silver pendant 2`` long.
1. MARK is not punched but most probably laser engraved. Tiffany did it on some small silver items (open heart pendants by the same designer).But I may be wrong; there is a plethora of faked Tiffany designs, even openly sold as ``Tiffany inspired``, and laser engraving is much easier than making punching tools. Besides, there is no © here, seen with Elsa Peretti, e.g. ``Spain`` collection. Was copyright © by Elsa Peretti © mandatory?
2. DESIGN does not look like Elsa Peretti later designs, but she joined Tiffany in 1974 and I am not familiar with what she did since 1974.This design is closer to Frank Gehry Orchid Drop, but then the signature does not match, and either way, the design cannot be found anywhere, not even in retired Tiffany products. On the other hand, if faked, why should one fake not registered design?
Btw.the pendant does look new;pre-owned condition
3. PENDANT ITSELF: Either the chain or silk cord is missing.
In short, have you seen this pendant? Is it genuine Tiffany Elsa Peretti? If so, was there a chain or silk cord?
Thank you for helping
