Yet again the mighty weather change has caused me to be in bed sneezing and coughing. Reading WWD today, I saw the news about Tiffany & co going up against Costco, but since I’m not registered to the site I didn’t get the whole article. Anyways, what better way to cheer me and get me out if the sick blues than to look at some sparkly goodies. Jean Schlumberger jewellery (especially his rings) have always caught my fascination and is one of the few collaborations Tiffany & Co have in their repertoire.
Jean Schlumberger’s beautiful nature inspired and whimsical pieces have been known to impress the likes of Greta Garbo, Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor. Jacqueline Kennedy has worn many of Jean’s bracelets that they’ve become known as the Jakie bracelets. Although Schlumberger passed away in 1987 (the year I was born) his legacy still lives on. My favourite Schlumberger piece is from the Tiffany & Co Blue Book collection of 2011. It’s called the star ring, a brilliant blue diamond with small diamond stars around it. I believe my name means bright star, hence my love for this particular piece.
