Suzanne Belperron and Taffin protagonists of the spring edition of Tefaf in New York ♦ ︎
Founded in fairly recent times, in 1988, Tefaf is considered the world’s leading organization of art, antiques and design. It is a high level fair, with exceptional pieces. Also of jewels. But over time, Tefaf has multiplied by three: in Maastricht it covers 7,000 years of art history; New York Spring focuses on art and modern and contemporary design and New York Fall covers decorative and refined art from antiquity to the 1920s. To a certain extent, jewels never fail in any of these manifestations, even though the greatest quantity of pieces can be found at the Maastricht appointment in March.
Now, however, it is time of New York (4-8 May 2018). Also in this case there are interesting pieces. With two authors, in particular: Suzanne Belperon and James Claude Taffin de Givenchy, founder of the Taffin brand. Among the first, the catalog includes pieces with a collar-shaped collar in gold, 40 centimeters, from 1940, but also a geometric ring in silver and hematite of the ’30s, or a pair of clip-on earrings with pearls, platinum and diamonds. Of Taffin, a rose gold ring with garnet and ceramic, a brooch with spessartite cabochon and two earrings with diamonds in gold, ceramic and rose gold. In short, among many paintings, sculptures and antique furniture there is no shortage of jewelry to see. Federico Graglia
