Suzanne Belperron Jewelry

Suzanne Belperron (1900–83) may not be a household name, but anyone who knows jewelry will recognize her as one of the industry’s 20th-century greats. She was born Suzanne Vuillerme in Saint-Claude, France, a center of the French diamond-cutting industry. Displaying an early talent for design, Belperron studied at the Besançon École des Beaux-Arts before moving to Paris and landing her first job as a model-maker and designer at French jewelry house Boivin when she was 19. Within a few years, she was named codirector — a meteoric rise that would jump-start her legacy.

In 1932, Belperron left Boivin to partner with gemstone and natural pearl dealer Bernard Herz, with whom she would develop her distinct avant-garde aesthetic. Unlike most jewelry designers of the day, Belperron decided against signing her works, feeling so confident in her uniqueness that she declared, “My style is my signature.” Her exceptionally dramatic works were nothing like the angular Art Deco pieces that were popular at the time, taking on large-scale sculptural forms and featuring various design motifs from cultures around the world. The designer was a favorite of couturier Elsa Schiaparelli, who modeled her Belperron jewelry in Vogue in 1933. (Belperron jewels would grace the cover of Vogue Paris in 1934.) She would also count Diana Vreeland and Wallis Simpson, the Duchess of Windsor, among her fans.

World War II changed everything. When the Germans occupied Paris, the Jewish Herz transferred the company to Belperron in order to preserve the business. Both would later be arrested by the Nazis. Belperron was released; Herz was sent to the Drancy internment camp. He later died at Auschwitz, despite Belperron’s best efforts to get him released.

Belperron kept the firm going during the war and after its end Herz’s son, Jean — a released prisoner of war — became Belperron’s equal partner per Bernard Herz’s final wishes. The two would work together under the name Jean Herz-Suzanne Belperron for the rest of her career. In 1963, Belperron was awarded the rank of Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur, and she quietly retired in 1974.

In 1987, there was a resurgence of interest in Belperron’s work, thanks to the auction of the Duchess of Windsor’s personal collection, which included at least 16 pieces by the designer. In 1999, Ward Landrigan of Verdura acquired both the rights to the Belperron name as well as a design archive of thousands of drawings, leading to the relaunch of the brand in 2015 with a new salon on Fifth Avenue in New York.

Located in Weston, MA
This extraordinary mid-century jewel by Suzanne Belperron consists of a lyre-shaped emerald and diamond detachable pendant brooch suspended from two rows of cultured pearls interspersed with green glass beads and finished with a platinum clasp set with old mine cut diamonds. Belperron’s jewelry often incorporated a mix of cuts – smooth beads and cabochons play off faceted stones to create a sense of tension in her designs. The pendant and necklace can be worn separately. Suzanne Belperron was an artist and designer ahead of her time. She combined precious and humble materials to create a strikingly modern jewelry aesthetic. Her bold and imaginative pieces attracted the most fashionable and original women of the day including Elsa Schiaparelli, the Duchess of Windsor and Diana Vreeland and her work was frequently featured on the covers and in the pages of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. - Pendant measures 1.94” x 1.02” - Necklace is 14.5” long - Pendant consists of circular and single-cut diamond pavé weighing approximately 7.81 carats - Pendant contains 1 step-cut emerald weighing approximately 1.58 carats - Pendant consists of step-cut emerald pavé weighing approximately 0.35 carats - Necklace consists of 6mm cultured pearls with graduated glass beads...
