If I Were A Girl: Jean Schlumberger Brooches


If I were a girl I would wear brooches... preferably more than one at a time and not only for special occasions.  Quick stop at the bank to check on the millions?  Brooch on cashmere twinset.  Afternoon ride to survey the estate?  Brooch cluster on denim jacket.  Hours on the stair-master to keep girlish figure in check?  Brooch on the sequin headband.  As far as my inner girl is concerned:  the bigger the better... gold, platinum, precious gems?  Yes, yes and you betcha!  These intricate designs by Jean Schlumberger for Tiffany and Co. would fit me, I mean her, just fine.
From here.

I agree completely. Women's jewelry tends to hold limited appeal to me, but these pieces are extraordinary.

I ADORE brooches. I have several wonderful ones but these of course fall into the spectacular category. Schlumberger was the master!!

Dear Quintessence (such a perfect name!)...I am convinced that the brooch will (again) have its day very soon!
