Verdura and Belperron chief operating officer Colleen Caslin has stepped down from her role, “to pursue other interests,” according to the brands.

Caslin had been with the jointly owned fine jewelry firms for nearly eight years. She was responsible for both their web site relaunches, organizing a retrospective of Verdura designs, and for the reboot of Belperron, which had laid dormant since 1974.

“I am privileged to be associated with two historic brands and iconic master jewelers of the 20th century at such a dynamic time,” Caslin said.

Belperron, an early 20th century brand founded by Suzanne Belperron and known for its creations for the Duchess of Windsor, opened its first New York flagship boutique in October 2015.

Verdura also continues to spread its influence in the U.S., where it has recently renovated its shop-in-shop at Bergdorf Goodman at the gates of the store’s new jewelry department. Its neighbor there across an archway is Chanel fine jewelry.

The brands are owned by Verdura chief executive officer Ward Landrigan and his son Nico Landrigan, president of Verdura and Belperron.

Prior to working at Verdura and Belperron, Caslin served as vice president of the Movado Group; chief operating officer of Graff and Seaman Schepps, and senior vice president of Asprey & Garrard.

Verdura and Belperron said they have no present plans to replace her.
