Suzanne Belperron, gold and diamond bracelet

Quote 20 Dec

Martin Travis, a dealer in London, said: “You can pick up most pieces of [Suzanne] Belperron and know it’s a Belperron. She had a signature.”

But she never signed her work. “My style is my signature,” Belperron once said.

What a beautiful setting — not quite a bezel and not quite a prong either.  The lemon quartz is beautiful, too.
