Undoubtedly, France is one of two great countries (with the United States), which made the greatest contribution to the history of costume jewelry. Up until the end of the 20th century, many beautiful items came out of designers’s hands and are now welcome trophies of collectors. And it is quite a rarity when, during the life of a designer, his works become on par with Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel or Dior. This is the kind of fame Claire Deve has. Noteworthy, prices for her works from the 80s-90s start from 100 euros for small clips and go up.
Decorations by Claire Deve belong to the high fashion of the 1980-90s. The designer created jewelry for the most prestigious fashion designers, including Chanel, Jean Paul Gautier and Claude Montana.
