Circa 1960s,18k, by Kurt Aepli for Burch, Zurich Switzerland. Designed by Kurt Aepli, renowned Swiss master goldsmith, designer, and teacher, this double-strand pearl necklace is an impeccable example of his approach to contemporary jewelry. In essence, its brilliantly chic motif is organic modernism. Spheres or pearls are strung from a square frame with circles and an oval forming a sleek cruciform. What could be more elegant The superb 2.50-carat sapphire adds color and depth giving the catch visual gravity. Flawlessly fabricated, this is a refined example of Swiss modern design. Excellent condition.

Remarks from Lawrence Jeffrey: "As a teacher at the Zurich School of Applied Arts, Kurt Aepli influenced generations of goldsmiths. For 35 years his teachings in special subjects were compulsory. Experienced goldsmiths came from around the world to work with him. He famously said, 'In Nature there are no wrong colors, shapes or sounds." In a quiet and unassuming way, he was an artistic rock star!"
