Jean Schlumberger in Paris with Tiffany




In Paris, Tiffany organizes an exhibition of one hundred jewels by Jean Schlumberger ♦

Jean Schlumberger, one of the jewels gods. Tiffany dedicates a four-week exhibition to him, with a hundred jewels, including 80 unique pieces, starting from June 12th. The pieces can be purchased and can be booked in any Tiffany boutique. The sales exhibition is organized in the Champs-Élysées boutique.
The great designer, to whom the American Maison has also dedicated a book, was in fact one of the greatest men creative of jewelery, and he worked in particular for Tiffany.
French, Alsatian from Mulhouse, a town on the border with Germany and Switzerland, Schlumberger has had two fortunes: the first is the survive from the terrible battle of Dunkerque, during the Second World War. The other was to meet Tiffany’s president, Walter Hoving, in 1956.

After the war and the brief military career, in fact, the designer had moved to New York to design clothes for Chez Ninon. In 1946, however, it had already turned into a jeweler with its own Maison. But it is with Tiffany that his fame takes off, started with the Bird on a Rock brooch, with a large fancy yellow diamond. Transferred from Tiffany, where he had his own laboratory and a private elevator, Schlumberger worked for the Maison until the end of the 1970s (he was born in 1907 and passed away in 1987) and in recent years he was also vice president of Tiffany.

Schlumberger is a figure that has entered the history of jewelry, with works that have remained famous, such as his jewels inspired by sea creatures and other animals. Jacqueline Kennedy wore so many Schlumberger bracelets that the press nicknamed them Jackie bracelets. He was also one of four jewelers to whom Tiffany allowed to sign his work, along with Paloma Picasso, Elsa Peretti and Frank Gehry. Federico Graglia
