    Jean Schlumberger for Tiffany & Co.: Parisian artist and jeweler Jean Schlumberger's (1907-1987) career began as a costume jewelry designer for Elsa Schiaparelli. Recognition came when in 1955; he joined Tiffany & Co., becoming the first designer to be given the privilege of signing his name to his jewelry. In his two decades with Tiffany, Schlumberger traveled extensively, often in the company of the social elite. His sensitivity to balance and proportion is evident in all of his designs from the most geometric to classic to outrageously whimsical. Schlumberger's pure love of nature such as butterflies, birds, sea life and flowers lead to enchanting designs that are highly prized and collectible to this day. His creations featured a rainbow of color formed by the best of gems, in combination with enamel and gold. Not limited to just jewelry, Schlumberger designed fabulous compacts, picture frames, cigarette cases and objects of vertu; which, today, are found in private collections and museums around the world.
