Suzanne Belperron

Suzanne Belperron occupies a special place in jewelry history as perhaps the most influential and important female jewelry designer of all time. She got her start as a designer for the Parisian firm René Boivin, where she was responsible for some of the firm’s most innovative ideas. In 1932, Bernard Herz, a Parisian stone dealer, recognized her avant-garde talent and hired Belperron to design for herself under the B. Herz name. Garnering reviews ranging from “brilliant” to “barbaric,” Belperron’s creations adorned many of the most fashionable women of the day. Famously never signing her pieces –” my style is my signature,” she would say – Belperron’s originality continuously kept the firm on the cutting edge until her retirement 1974.
