On May 10th New York’s revered Costume Institute throws its doors open to Impossible Conversations, an exhibition which explores the striking affinities between Italian fashion game changers Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada; two women from different eras whose exploration of similar themes shines through in striking aesthetic parallels.

In anticipation of the show, today sees online vintage emporium 1stdibs unveil a selection of rare Schiaparelli jewelry including an Art Deco palm leaf brooch, an Anglo-Indian wirework bib featuring limpid peridot cabochons, and a pretty Aurora Borealis paste pendant.

Now, where did we put that credit card?
