BiennaleDesAntiquaires2014BlogHeaderFor the next 10 days, the Place Vendôme is host to arguably the most important event in the jewelry calendar: La Biennale Paris. While this curious mind remains stateside, the next best way to celebrate the beauty of such exquisite pieces is to curate a series of jewels that we admire. Each day from September 11 – 21, we will present a selection here, as well as on twitter @BeautifulCurio and Instagram @BeautifulCurious… stay tuned!

Beauty knows no boundary, nor does Peter Lippmann when he pairs fiercely stunning jewels with fruit rich in the velvety grips of decay. Immediately this editorial from September 2011 for Marie Claire France titled “Vanites” brings to mind the lushious, rotting fruit painted by Caravaggio. He might even be in awe of the irony here, as the jems from Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier, and Dior Joailerie (among many others) burst forth out of the withering fruit. Curiously, their splendor is nearly eclipsed by the beauty of the languishing grapes… and is strangely inspiring.
