Schlumberger's objects pass from the realm of history, whether natural or mythical, into the realm of beauty. This beauty is rarity, precision, balance, choice. It is also discipline, patience, truth, poetry. Schlumberger's objects, so harmonious, so tangible, are not positioned in space alone; they seem to rise before us from a world of will and idea. Because they have chosen art as against fashion, because they are the fruit of reflection and slow ripening, Schlumberger's objects have time on their side. They will be beautiful tomorrow as they are today"; Jean d'Ormesson, in Jean Schlumberger, Milan, 1994, pg. 13.
The important collection from a distinguished European family is a testimony to the taste and style of the 1960s and 1970s. This very nice array of jewels comports several pieces from the master jeweller Schlumberger and is a tribute to his craftsmanship and ingenuity.
