SUZANNE BELPERRON. A pair of rock crystal and diamond 'Éventail' brooches

Of stylised fan design, each composed of a single piece of rock crystal carved into radiating geometric segments, embellished with circular-cut diamond detail to the tips and pavé-set diamond arches to the centre, circa 1935, maker's mark for Groené et Darde, French assay marks for platinum and gold. Note: Originally conceived during her time at René Boivin, Suzanne Belperron made many variations of the rock crystal and diamond fan motif which is now considered one of her most iconic designs. Examples of their variations can be seen on many pages of the two books detailed below.
