Legendary French jeweler Suzanne Belperron
The cult name Belperron refers to the style of the last century, which remains surprisingly relevant today. The great designer who went against the tradition, Suzanne Belperron today is unusually in demand, her things at auctions receive very high prices. Meanwhile, the artist did not leave any heir. So, her name should remain history. However, some people bought archives and began to do new things according to old sketches. Belperron, they say, before her death wanted to burn her sketches – because the idea that someone could use them, for her was unbearable. Fortunately, she did not burn them.
The main sources of inspiration for Suzanne Belperron jewelry – flora and fauna in all their variety of colors and shapes. In many of her works, there are combinations of shades and images inspired by nature. The most striking example is the brooch “Starfish”, which is a single piece of rock crystal in the form of a starfish with diamonds inside.
