The brilliant mind of Jean Schlumberger produced a profusion
of rare delights: exotic sea creatures, fantastic birds and marvelous
flowers of gold. With Tiffany’s breathtaking gemstones at his
fingertips, he envisioned some of the world’s greatest jewelry
masterpieces. Tiffany jewelers in New York and Paris still handcraft
the ravishing jewels that are Schlumberger’s invaluable legacy
to art and fashion.
In 1956, Jean Schlumberger joined Tiffany & Co. Immediately,
his designs were coveted and collected by the world’s most
fashionable women, including Jacqueline Kennedy and legendary
Vogue editor Diana Vreeland. Today, they continue to be worn by
women of unimpeachable taste.
Tiffany’s reputation for finding the world’s most spectacular diamonds dates back to 1848. That year, founder Charles Lewis Tiffany acquired a large cache of important jewels, earning him the moniker “The King of Diamonds.”
