BIJOUX BIBLES This year, there are a number of notable book releases fit for a jewelry aficionado’s library. Among them, we recommend “The Impossible Collection of Jewelry” by Vivienne Becker, “Suzanne Syz: Art Jewels” and “David Webb: The Quintessential American Jeweler” by Ruth Peltason — the first book on this 20th-century master — all available through Assouline. And what of the essential tomes no collector should be without? We asked François Curiel, international head of jewelry, Christie’s, and president, Christie’s Asia, to share his expert picks. “Amongst more than 150 jewelry books in my library, my three most cherished are: ‘Cartier’ by Hans Nadelhoffer; ‘JAR,’ published on the occasion of the exhibition ‘The Jewels of JAR, Paris’ at Somerset House in London in 2002–2003; and ‘Famous Diamonds’ by Ian Balfour.” Right: “Suzanne Syz: Art Jewels,” $150, assouline.com I don’t know where home is yet. I feel that even though I have lived abroad most of my life, Beirut is the place I will always call my home. My origins have definitely influenced my work. There is a certain warmth and generosity from that part of the world, and I feel and hope it exists in my creations. ➼ What inspired your first collection? I looked through medieval decorative arts dating from the 12th century. I found this box of relics and was amazed by all the beautiful shapes drawn on its surface. ➼ What are you working on next? I am currently working on my next collection, Harlequin. It is a lot of fun to work on this new collection that carries a completely different feel and inspiration. EXHIBITIONIST From Oct. 17 to Dec. 2, Verdura will open its salon doors to exhibit and sell more than 40 rare, vintage treasures from the house’s archives. The occasion will showcase notable pieces from both Fulco di Verdura and Suzanne Belperron (whose estate is owned by Verdura), two creative visionaries of 20th-century jewelry design.
