Vintage Drop: Angela Cummings Earrings
As one of Tiffany’s most well-regarded designers, Angela Cummings is among just a number of artists allowed to sign their names to their designs for the iconic brand. After studying Art History and earning a degree as a gemologist, goldsmith, and designer in Germany, Cummings returned to the states and was hired as an in-house designer by Tiffany & Co. in 1974. Her extensive education and varied interests informed her different processes—among them her famous inlay designs—and the semi-precious stones she used in her craft.
These 18k gold circular disc earrings, rimmed in radiant white diamonds, combine simple geometric forms with the kind of purity Cumming’s designs always channeled. With an everlasting appeal that transcends generations, these intriguing earrings from 1982 are an example of the subtle elements of modernity that Cummings so thoughtfully brought to the Tiffany archives.
