Suzanne Belperron’s jewels are now revived thanks to a Maison that bought the brand with the name of the famous designer ♦
«My style is my signature», was fond of saying Suzanne Belperron, one of the most influential 20th century jewelry designer. In effect, she never marked a piece with her name until 1960: were enough sweeping lines inspired by nature and the cultures of exotic worlds and unusual large stones to characterize a production that had admirers as Elsa Schiaparelli, Fred Astaire, Frank Sinatra, the Duchess of Windsor and Colette. The brand of the highly talented designer who died in 1983, was recently acquired to be relaunched by Ward Landrigan (former head of jewelry’s department at Sotheby’s) and his son Nico. An operation which recalls the one entered in 1985 with the purchase of of the remains of the company founded by Fulco di Verdura, other well-known designers. They share a strong reputation and impeccable quality and now, and after the rebirth of the jewels of the aristocratic Sicilian, now it is the great French artist’s turn. With a real artistic heritage collected in previous years through auction market and private sales, the Landrigan started to recreate her jewelry with the relatives of Parisian artisans who worked with Belperron. A reconstruction almost philological also in gold techniques. And with an aesthetic that had abandoned the Art Deco style of his era, to embrace Egyptian, Asian, African and Oceania influences with flora and fauna’s shapes with manufacturing in 22-carat gold, chosen for its color despite the metal’s softness. The prices of the new jewelry ranging from $ 13,000 up to six figures.
