A 1940's bracelet by Suzanne BELPERRON

This is great bracelet made by Suzanne Belperron for Groene et Darde between 1941 and 1945. It is set in platinum with diamonds and calibre cut sapphires featuring a central circular cut diamond. The design is amazing and the quality of the craftsmanship even better. Suzanne Belperron was a pioneer not only for her talent but also for being one of the few women in that 1920's that worked and achieved deserved recognition for it. This piece, which belongs to the collection of Mrs. Lily Safra, will be auctioned by Christie's Geneva on May 14th. Coincidentally, Sotheby's Geneva will be auctioning her private jewellery collection on the same day. A true tribute to this brave figure!.
