Description: Inspired by the nature-loving Jeanne Boivin, Juliette Moutard designed the first starfish brooch for the firm of Rene Boivin circa 1937. Since then, starfish brooches have been highly sought after by followers of High Fashion and jewelry. One of the most famous jewelry designers of the mid century was Jean Schlumberger, first designer permitted to sign his work for Tiffany & Co. Here is a wonderful starfish brooch designed by Jean Schlumberger. Each of the 5 tentacles is different to the others and while the brooch is assymmetric, it is perfectly balanced. Textured like a true, natural starfish, with golden globules that glisten as the light catches them, swirling on each tentacle, that appears to be floating and swaying in the water. The arms of the starfish are further set with lovely deep blue cabochon sapphires and the whole leads to a flower-like center, slightly raised for further effect, featureing a marvellous red ruby.

Lifelike and full of movement, this must be one of Schlumberger's more successful designs.
