Tiny Ladybug Pin, Sonia Rykiel of Paris, in original box
|Online Auction Description|
This Ladybug pin is an unusual item from this Parisian designer who has few jewelry items â and favors large, chunky, dramatic pieces. Without Rykiel's stamp on the back, you might think this little creature had crept into the wrong box.
The back of the pin has the "butterfly clutch" to hold it in place and the designer's stamp "Sonia Rykiel â Paris" The identifying stamp is hidden by the clutch and is so tiny I have been unable to capture it in a picture.
The pin is approximately 3/4" long. Slightly over 1/2â wide.
This Ladybug pin does not appear to be currently offered anywhere on the Web, although several other ladybugs in the typically dramatic Rykiel style are easily found.
The "hard enamel" process is now favored for high-end pins. It is the most durable as well as the best quality and the finish is absolutely smooth. (No rough edges as may occur with cloisonné.)
The designer, Sonia Rykiel, has been a leading designer in France for decades -- awarded the French LÃ¨gion d'Honneur for 40 years of service to French fashion. Her sweaters became so popular that American fashion named her "Queen of Knits" in 1967.
She is considered one of the 10 most elegant women in the world.
Sonia Rykiel's unusual ladybug pin, perfect condition. Looks new. In its original dark blue box with the Rykiel logo stamped in gold.
