Drawing on his carefree youth on the Mediterranean Sea, Verdura incorporated rope-work, weaving and wrapping into the majority of his designs, with Vogue later commenting on his "beautiful polished pebbles, fished from the bottom of the sea and caught in a net of gold." In the example of Verdura’s Tassel necklace, the gold and rock crystal “netting” appears to ensnare a fringe of pearls, “fished from the sea” and transported to the streets of New York.

Verdura’s career began in the early 1930s when he started working for Coco Chanel. No doubt, the young jeweler was indelibly influenced by his first employer and the layers of pearls she favored wearing over her suits. Later experimenting with color and textures in his jewelry designs, Verdura juxtaposed the vibrant sheen of pearls with the warm buttery glow of polished gold.
