Jean Schlumberger joined Tiffany & Co in 1956 to head up an independent design studio and salon. This would become one of the most significant collaborations in the company’s history. Surrounded by a seemingly endless supply of fabulous multi-hued gemstones and a large team of talented craftsmen he was able to create some of the most magnificent jewels of the mid 20th century. Greatly inspired by all forms of nature including birds, insects, sea creatures and flowers he designed jewellery that was imbued with colour and joie de vivre. His sensitivity to balance and proportion is evident in all his designs from classic earrings like these to the most whimsical pieces featuring unicorns and jellyfish.
