About Enchanting Imagination: The Objets d’Art of André Chervin and Carvin French Jewelers

World-renowned jeweler André Chervin (b. 1927) and his New York atelier, Carvin French, are recognized as masters of fine jewelry-making whose dazzling brooches, bracelets, necklaces, and earrings are sold by Tiffany & Co., Harry Winston, and Cartier. Unbeknownst to his many fans, Chervin has also been designing a personal collection of precious objets d’art over the past several decades. Expressive of his artistic imagination, passion for raw materials and bygone techniques, and fascination with the engineering of clockworks and other mechanisms, these secret treasures have never been shown to the public—until now. Opulent Imagination introduces Chervin’s miniature masterpieces—one-of-a-kind lamps, clocks, figurines, boxes, personal accessories, and table decorations fashioned from gems such as rubies, diamonds, and sapphires and stones like amethyst, citrine, and quartz—in a dramatic display of approximately 50 jeweled confections made since the1950s. Curated by Debra Schmidt Bach, curator of decorative arts and special exhibitions.
