Protégé of Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent founded his fashion house in 1961 and the following year released the first collection of his costume jewelry. The style of his jewelry is from elegant classical to exotic refined. Bijouterie of the 1970s – theatrical and bright, demonstrates the same purity of shapes and lines as clothing.

According to Yves Saint Laurent, people underestimate the importance of accessories – this is the thing that changes attire. “I like simple dresses and crazy accessories”, once he said. For Saint-Laurent, the perfection of the outfit dependeds not so much on clothes as on the correct decoration. For his customers couturier hired famous artists, jewelry designers, and haberdashery craftsmen, who could embody his ideas in perfect shape.
