This “Egyptian necklace” from 1942, signed Suzanne Belperron, is one of the key pieces of the next auction of Artcurial in Monaco. The designer often created ethnical-inspired jewelry, even if she didn’t travel. This influence can be explained by the African and Asian pieces she often admired at the Museum of Fine Arts and Archeology in Besançon, where she went to school. Estimation: 30 000-40 000 €.
Auction sale on January 19th and 20th 2017 – Yacht Club of Monaco

To support Sauvade, the French designer Pascale Monvoisin has created a pretty ring with a gold plaque on which a message can be engraved.
Developed and patented by Lebanese jeweler Tabbah for one of his customers, this ring is a reinterpretation of the traditional cigarette-holder.
Precious stones are not only used in jewelry. The Compagnie Française de l’Orient et de la Chine proposes four hardstone bowls hand-carved in India.
Pharaonic motifs, hieroglyphics, beetles… The influence of Egypt is a classic theme in the jewelry of contemporary creators and jewelers.
