Bourbon Collection

The era was marked by the rise of a new social class, not noble but well-off: the bourgeoisie. The jewelry created during this time period benefited from new production techniques. Gold leaf became more malleable and moldable, allowing the creation of finely worked jewelry with a lavish appearance. The gold used, however, had a reddish tint and was not of the highest purity in order to limit its value, and hence its price.

Features of the Collection
The main characteristic of this collection is the elaborate processing of the jewelry and the typical reddish color of the metal.
