Pierre Sterlé is particularly renowned for his designs during the 1940s and 1950s. His asymmetrical style of jewelry was widely used with a combination of precious and semi-precious gemstones in his favorite motifs, such as birds, wings, feathers, animals and flowers. Some of his famous theme designs included "angel wire", a mesh of sorts which he created in 1957. As someone who thought of himself as a highly exclusive French jeweler and designer, he refused to display his jewels in window cases open to public view. His pieces were thus produced for, and seen by, only a select few.
