“Cambodian Chalcedony Cuff” by Belperron



Suzanne Belperron (1900–1983), born in Saint-Claude, France, was an influential 20th-century jewelry designer[1][2] based in Paris. Belperron is a fine jeweler selling vintage jewelry and reprised designs by the late designer, Suzanne Belperron (1900-1983). After beginning her career with Boivin in 1919, Belperron pioneered a new aesthetic in jewelry:  sensual, tactile, and arrestingly modern. With influential clients such as Elsa Schiaparelli, the Duchess of Windsor, and Diana Vreeland, Belperron is widely recognized as one of the most influential designers of the 20 century.


An exceptional model of Madame Belperron’s carved hardstone work. The creamy chalcedony body is carved and polished to reveal a soft, even hue, a testament both to the quality of the material and the expertise of the lapidary who transformed it into Madame Belperron’s vision.

A statement piece of art by itself.


Her jewelry was so original that she never signed her pieces. \”My style is my signature\” once said: Suzanne Belperron (1900–1983), born in Saint-Claude, France, was an influential 20th-century jewelry designer based in Paris. For 56 years almost every month, her creations appeared in fashion magazines such as Vogue and Harper\’s Bazaar. Trained at the height of the Art Deco movement, Suzanne Belperron pioneered the technique of setting precious stones in semiprecious materials. We read something about her that caught our attention, she use to pay extra consideration to proportion, something that is taken for granted today. Not just for aesthetics of proportion, she also included the study of terms of the person who wears it and the combination of the materials. As opposed to what we would think, her answer was to reduce the forms.

Suzanne Belperron is known for: “She appealed to people who wanted to show off their taste and not their money\”. She could be my cup of tea!! and yours too!! I\’m sure.
