Description

Sputnik Clip Earrings by Lobmeyr

Exclusive to the Met Opera Shop, these exquisite Swarovski crystal earrings were inspired by the Met’s Sputnik chandeliers given to the Metropolitan Opera by the Austrian government upon its opening in 1966.

Set in brass with a safe nickel-free alloy, each collectible, one-of-a-kind pair is made by hand using Lobmeyr craftmanship. They measure 1” wide x 1 ½” high.

The Sputnik chandeliers were conceived by Tad Lbeski of Harrison & Abramovitz specifically for the lobby and auditorium of the Met Opera House then developed further and fabricated by Hans Harold Rath of J. & L. Lobmeyr, Vienna, Austria.

An excellent choice for one’s self and other lovers of the Met.

LIMIT: One pair per customer while supplies last.

History

Sputniks

The Metropolitan Opera’s starburst chandeliers have been a beloved fixture of the opera house at Lincoln Center since it opened in 1966.  Dubbed “sputniks” after the Russian spacecraft, they reflect light brilliantly through clusters of Swarovski crystals.
