This pair of ear clips made of three different gold alloys is a classic design. The clips consist of three rings. One executed in yellow gold, one in white gold, one in red gold, which are inseparably intertwined. The model for jewellry of this type was a ring created by Louis Cartier in 1924 for the poet Jean Cocteau. Cocteau had developed a somewhat vague and paradoxical theory that there was a connection between ancient signet rings, "the only jewellery that is not jewellery", and the rings of the planet Saturn. At a meeting with Louis Cartier, whom he had met in a military hospital during World War I, Cocteau defined his ideas about the symbolism of the three rings a little more precisely and ordered two such pieces of jewelry. One for himself, the second for the young Raymond Radiguet, the author of Le Diable au Corps. Cocteau had thus launched the triple ring, which became an international success and remains so to this day. Now here this catchy idea is modified in the form of ear clips. According to their hallmarks, the clips were created in Italy, probably in the years around 1985. We discovered them in Hamburg.
