Prince Dimitri of Yugoslavia grew up in Versailles, descended from a long line of European royal families. His interest in gems and jewellery was sparked early, when his paternal grandmother, Princess Olga of Greece and Denmark, related first-hand the legendary jewellery collection of her mother and grandmother, the Grand Duchesses Helen Vladimirovna and Maria Pavlovna of Russia. Following a 17 year career with the auctions in New York, Prince Dimitri launched his first collection in 1999, which was successfully sold at Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. In 2008, he and his business partner, Todd Morley, opened a private salon at 5 East 57th Street in New York, offering unique jewels designed by Prince Dimitri himself. The striking earrings offered here are a personal work, incorporating his favourite combination of colours, green and blue, together with a bold, yet elegant design.
