A pair of sputnik earrings made in 18k gold, featuring diamonds; designed by Paloma Picasso for
Tiffany & Co.
The world’s first artificial satellite called “Sputnik” was launched into orbit in 1957 by the Soviet
Union. It was a round object with spikes, and this notable design was soon reflected in American
jewelry. This nickname, sputnik, has been used to identify this spiky design ever since. This pair
by Paloma Picasso makes a statement with its minimalist style. Glossy gold spheres scarcely
adorned with the bezel set diamonds really pop. At the same time, these diamond earrings are
very wearable, which makes this art piece of jewels even more valuable.
