These stunning peacock-inspired pieces, from the Plume de Paon collection, are inspired by hair jewelry and brooches from this fine Parisian jeweler that date back to the mid-1800s. The series is now reinterpreted using light-weight titanium for the forms and setting them with diamonds, sapphires, tsavorites and tanzanites for extraordinary depth and color. The collection includes a necklace with a detachable brooch (see first image), earrings, rings and a bracelet.
