Suzanne Belperron needs no lengthy introduction here:

her pioneering aesthetic and her remarkable life story speak for themselves. In reviewing our archive of more than 9,300 designs for this collection, we are reminded why she declined

to sign even her simplest pieces. Her response, like her jewelry, was straightforward and bold, “My style is my signature.” Perhaps most importantly for the modern woman, Belperron’s beautiful creations are also wearable. Karl Lagerfeld said “I love the magic equilibrium in everything she designed.” From the beginning, Belperron’s jewelry became part of a woman’s style whenever and wherever, with “never any danger of overstatement.” We have called this year’s collection Toujours, in recognition of the daily wearability and timelessness of Suzanne Belperron’s designs. Turning these pages will show the range of Suzanne’s extraordinary ability: from the simplicity of what she called virgin gold to her innovative serti couteau, to her masterful combinations of colors and materials. Texture, hue, shape, scale — each in balance to fit the life of a modern woman. We invite you to feel, hold and wear Belperron’s jewelry to understand its charismatic appeal.
