Jean Schlumberger, the legendary French born Jewelry designer who created some of Tiffany’s most incredible jewels. J.S began his career making buttons for Elsa Schiaparelli.
Then came WW2, J.S was in the French Army and survived the Battle of Dunkirk. He also served under General Charles de Gaulle in England and the Middle East with the Free French Forces. Post the war he moved to NYC to start a design career, and began working with Tiffany&Co in 1956, where he famously designed the mounting for the Tiffany Yellow Diamond, one of the largest yellow diamonds ever discovered; its carat weight is 287.42 carats (57.484 g).
His incredible talent and eye for style, and shape, continued to create remarkable pieces until the late 70’s where he retired as Vice-President. Among his many admirers were; Elizabeth Tayler, Jacqueline Kennedy, Diane Vreeland and Audrey Hepburn aka our Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany and Co.
