21 Jan what’s new?
Schlumberger perfected the “paillone” enameling technique, one that he resuscitated from an eighteenth-century art. This involves creating translucent colors by layering enamel over gold leaf. His paillone enamel bracelets created for Tiffany were de rigeur for chic women in the sixties and seventies and became most famous on the wrists of Bunny Mellon and Jacqueline Kennedy, hence the moniker “the Jackie-o” bracelet. One of four artists ever allowed to sign their work for Tiffany, Schlumberger created designs that look fresh and new today.
Iconic design always feels new.
We present five iconic bracelets, just in.

|vintage 1930s 14k gold and elephant hair bracelet|
