Often there is a designer that is leaps and bounds ahead of the rest of the pack. Their unique eye and ability to infuse creativity into beauty and practicality is a talent that the rest of us can simply admire in awe.
Jean Schlumberger is one of these designers. One of Tiffany & Cos most revered designers and of the elite group of the four that can sign his work alongside the Tiffany & Co. hallmark.
His unique aesthetic is bold, exciting and novel. He has created stunning pieces such as the 16 stone ring which doesn't cut any corners. He boldly uses the platinum and diamonds in a way that shows incredible conviction to design.
What's impressive is that there is a needed conformity to the traditional elements of jewellery. ie that the piece is a ring that is to be worn on a finger, or a pendant that is to be worn on a necklace. However the uniqueness is using this creativity within a limited space. Similar to how a painter is limited by canvas and paint and it is their creativity and vision that makes a creation.
His latest piece featured at the top of this blog post is the Butterfly Pendant part of Tiffany & Cos 2019 bugs and flowers range. Of all the items in this range, this is truly the most beautiful and cutest. Some of this range features the Return to Tiffany hearts being cut into flowers or bugs placed onto gemstones. It's fair to say the designers with this current design aesthetics are struggling to merge together beauty, the Tiffany aesthetic and the bugs and flowers theme.
Jean Schlumberger however created this beauty. Not only does it cleverly tie in the 2019 theme but it also is uniquely him. Not too dissimilar to the Lynne Pendant but obviously showing a different inspiration. I love how he has used pear shaped diamonds to create the wings of the butterfly. I also love how the body of the butterfly has this imprinting that I've never seen before on a Tiffany piece. It clearly looks like an adorable bug but is yet a delight to be worn as a pendant and stunning piece of diamond jewellery.
