The Original Umbrella

In 1965, while Jacques Pepin and his future wife Gloria were dating, Jacques and his friend and jeweler, Charles Odeurs, set out to design a brooch in the form of what was known as “The Pepin.” In colloquial French, pepin means umbrella. (Learn more).

Armed with a dentist tool and a hunk of wax, Jacques began to create a three dimensional version of that umbrella which became his signature. From that creative endeavor, Jacques and Charles created a total of four umbrella broaches, made in 18 karat gold and enamel. Each was given as a gift to family members and then the mold was destroyed.

The New Umbrella

More than 50 years later, in 2017, Jacques’ umbrella is once again a piece of fine jewelry. This time it’s a beautiful 18 karat gold with green and blue enamel pendant. The pendant is attached to a 16-inch yellow 14 karat gold cable chain.

Each pendant and necklace is individually handcrafted as ordered and will be part of a limited edition of 100 pieces and each will be engraved with the limited edition number (x/100) on the back of the pendant along with Jacques’ initials signature.

Size: The pendant is approximately 3/4″ wide by 7/8″ (from top of umbrella to bottom of handle). The gold cable chain is 16″.

Since each piece is handcrafted to order, there is a 3-4 week waiting period between order and shipment.
