At Fred Leighton, our promise is to continually re-imagine all that can be done with diamonds. In keeping with this rich tradition of innovation, we introduce our first jewelry designs made by combining two of the most enduring materials: diamonds and fine ceramic. Much like diamonds, fine ceramic made from zirconia is exceptionally durable. Fred Leighton fine ceramic is the highest quality available and achieves a superior luster that never fades. Smooth, sensual and exquisite – this material is as pleasing to the hand as it is to the eye.

Suzanne Belperron refused to sign her pieces, stating, “My style is my signature”—and thus, her name was largely forgotten by the time she died in 1983. But from 1919 to 1975, the Parisian designer created some of the most original jewelry of the 20th century, setting precious stones in carved rock crystal, chalcedony, and even wood. Her organic shapes and global motifs adorned the most fashionable women of the day, including the Duchess of Windsor, Diana Vreeland, Josephine Baker, and Elsa Schiaparelli. Since the 1987 auction of the Duchess of Windsor’s jewels, the value of Belperron designs has steeply escalated and they have become highly collectible.
As curators of 3 centuries of design, we look at jewelry with a discerning eye to find the most inspired, exquisitely crafted pieces. We are proud to share the world’s most renowned vintage jewelry from the greatest design periods the world has ever known.
