Catherine Noll created her jewellery in Paris in the 1970s. She collaborated with many of the greatest names in fashion including Nina Ricci, Chanel, Christian Dior and Tiffany. Catherine Deneuve described the jewellery, saying "I think it was the primitive and sophisticated form of her jewellery that seduced me." Noll worked primarily in wood, ivory, perspex and crystal. "The jewellery is unusual, bold and elegant." says Harry Fane.
