Mesmerizing Beauty: Jean Schlumberger’s Fantastical Designs

Widely considered an artistic genius, Schlumberger's innovative designs remain a cherished collection at Tiffany & Co. His interpretations of nature-sea creatures, flowering plants and exotic animals among them-transformed fine jewelry. More than 50 of his masterpieces are available for purchase at Tiffany's private Blue Book Collection preview in China this April. They will be included along with more than 500 high jewelry pieces in Shanghai before traveling to other cities across the globe.

Showcasing custom-cut diamonds and colorful paillonné enamel nestled in gold and platinum, Schlumberger's fantastical expressions are love letters to his affinity for flora and fauna. 'I try to make everything look as if it were growing, uneven, at random, organic, in motion,' Schlumberger once said. 'I want to capture the irregularities of the universe.'

The artist's indelible imprint on the world of high jewelry still shines on today with the 2021 Blue Book Collection, Colors of Nature, featuring Schlumberger's spellbinding pieces.
