She contributed enormously to the success of the Maison Rene Boivin, but in 1932 she decided to leave the company. It was with her associate Bernard Herz, a well known precious stone and pearl dealer, that Belperron first found the freedom to reject traditional jewellery design and manufacture. Fascinated by coloured stones, regardless of their value, she created highly innovative pieces, in contrast to the standard creations of the time which were mostly angular and set in platinum. Her jewellery was so original that she never signed her pieces, instead insisting 'my style is my signature'. Indeed, Belperron's avant-garde style was adored by the 'fashionistas' of her time. Her work frequently appeared in Harper's Bazaar and Vogue, and her clientele included most of Europe's royalty and aristocrats as well as bankers, fashion designers, intellectuals and American movie stars. The Duke of Windsor, the Rothschilds, Elsa Schiaparelli, Nina Ricci, Colette, Malet Stevens, Ganna Walska, and Gary Cooper are all known to have frequented Belperron's Parisian workshop. Belperron is often imitated today, and the lack of signature on her pieces can make identifying and dating them very difficult. The discovery of her personal archives was therefore of enormoussignificance, and makes this publication an essential reference book for enthusiasts of Suzanne Belperron and jewellery in general.
