To celebrate its 175th anniversary this year, Tiffany & Co. is introducing a host of glittery new products, including a limited-edition series of Tiffany 1837 designs made of Rubedo metal. But the classic styles are the ones that continue to catch our eye, as well as the attention of discerning jewelry lovers everywhere.
"I try to make everything look as if it were growing, uneven, at random, organic, in motion," Schlumberger once said.
For more than 20 years, until his retirement in the late 1970s, Jean Schlumberger was known for creating opulent, often whimsical jewelry, creating spectacular combinations of colored stones. He captured the glory of flowers, exotic birds and mythical creatures in bejeweled statements unrivaled in the world of jewelry design.
"I try to make everything look as if it were growing, uneven, at random, organic, in motion," he once said.
Schlumberger died in 1987, but his designs live on into the 21st century. His "Jackie bracelets," the multi-colored enameled bracelets worn by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, continue to be popular sellers at Tiffany.
He also created more flamboyant bracelets dotted with diamonds and accented with gold. Among our favorites is this thistle bracelet of red enamel in 18 karat gold with diamonds, price upon request.
Durable yet fashionable, it never goes out of style, which makes it the perfect candidate for those who yearn for the Best of Everything.
