Yellow gold Cartier "Sputnik" brooch.

CARTIER

A 585/000 yellow gold Cartier New York clip, "Sputnik" collection, figuring a thistle. 

 

The Cartier "Sputnik" designs illustrate the far-reaching influence of the Space Age, in addition to the more audacious jewelry designs which appeared in the 1960s.
This brooch recall the launch of Sputnik 1. Although playful in nature, these "Sputnik" creations by Cartier are one of many instances in which pop culture, art and design interpreted the tension caused by the launch of the Soviet satellite. Triggering the Space Race and playing a role in the greater Cold War, the impact of the Sputnik 1 launch can be seen in an expansive spectrum of cultural entities ranging from the premiere of The Jetsons in 1962 to works from artists such as Robert Rauschenberg from the same period.
