Glittering success for an elegant piece typical of the jeweler's style in the 1930s.

René Boivin (born in 1893) needs no introduction as the creator of bold, original jewelry that has been delighting elegant women since 1890. Although its founder died prematurely in 1917, his name lives on, perpetuated by women of great vision and talent. As we know, his wife Jeanne (1871-1959), sister of the couturier Paul Poiret, had the smart idea of hiring a young newcomer, Suzanne Belperron (1900-1983), who introduced the refined geometric codes of Art Deco. She left in 1932 and was replaced the following year by Juliette Moutard (1900-1990). This new designer gradually imposed her mark through her imaginative jewelry full of movement, as illustrated by this gold open bangle adorned with two removable platinum motifs entirely set with diamonds in the form of an "S"—which, as a little luxury bonus, can be used as lapel clips. Considerable artistry, which garnered €127,400.
