Pamela Lipkin MD has been searching for beauty for decades now, first and foremost in her professional role as a world famous plastic surgeon and second pursuing a lifelong passion–largely behind the scenes–for exceptional pieces of estate jewelry.
The skill sets required to excel in such rarified ventures are strangely similar. There’s an emphasis on proportion, shape and form which can’t be taught, it’s innate. She has always been ahead of any curve by following her instincts, buying significant pieces of Belperron jewelry for decades without even knowing who Suzanne Belperron was.
Although gifted with an extraordinary eye, Pamela spent countless hours scouring auctions, studying reference materials and absorbing valuable information from experts and willing colleagues. Her seal of approval today guarantees not only authenticity but the highest levels of taste and refinement. When you purchase an item from The Pamela Lipkin Collection you join an exclusive club of jewelry collectors.
Two key books on the history of 20th Century jewelry “Paul Flato: Jeweler to the Stars” and “Jewelry by Suzanne Belperron” illustrate not only important pieces from The Collection but also praise her invaluable contributions. Both authors concur that without her expertise neither book could have been published.
The Collection is driven by both design and style featuring makers such as Belperron, Flato, Boivin, Cartier and David Webb, yet each jewel defends its place in terms of materials and condition as well. All diamonds, colored stones and pearls have up to date reports from internationally recognized gem laboratories.
In an industry replete with uncertainty and risk, we hope to inspire you to consider building a collection of jewelry as art form; jewelry as a collectible asset class.
If you aspire to collect at this level, we invite you now to meet “the collector’s best kept secret” and explore with her industry access and expert guidance the exclusive inner sanctum of collectible fine jewelry.
