BARRY KIESELSTEIN-CORD, the HERMES of NEW YORK Large Solid 14K GOLD Avant Garde HEART Buckle with Lizard Strap Belt 73 Grams of 14K Gold
"KIESELSTEIN CORD started his business in 1972; Georg Jensen introduced his jewelry to the world the following year. The collectiona€™s unique combination of innovative finishes, bold themes and fine craftsmanship captured the worlda€™s attention. In 1976, he introduced what would become the first of his status belt buckles and the fashion world flocked to his door. In 1979, he won the first of two Coty Awards a€” followed by fashiona€™s ultimate accolade, the CFDA award. But seeing his designs worn by the sexiest, most stylish and powerful women and men in the world triumphed all success in Corda€™s eye."
"By the 1980s, Cord was established as one of Americaa€™s most sought-after artist-designers, and his company, Kieselstein-Cord, based in Manhattan, began to grow until it also included handbags, luggage, home furnishings, eyewear and other fine accessories. In 1985, he opened the first of many in-store boutiques at Bergdorf Goodman."
"Today, over 25,000 designs later, Barry Kieselstein-Cord remains an astonishingly successful designer and imaginative entrepreneur, and true to his personal vision. His pieces a€” every one of which is signed, dated and copyrighted a€” are widely sought after as instant classics that also bring in exceedingly high prices at auctions."
