Is a unique collection of handmade jewelry by designer David Maurer, based on classic French and European designs. We travel the byways of Europe, visiting old jewelry manufacturers and seeking out molds and findings that haven't been used for over a century. Most of our pieces come from. Made in France and England between 1830 and 1910.
We re-cast them by hand in a wide variety of finishes. You'll find animals, cherubs, crosses, shields, fleur de lis, escutcheons, cartouches, grotesques and more... Victorian, Edwardian, Empire, Classical Revival, Steampunk. On a scouting trip in Paris, we uncovered a.Trove of 19th century molds and findings hidden away in a remote corner of an ancient warehouse. These repousée pieces are amazingly detailed, reflecting the highest standard of French craftsmanship. You just can't get this quality in the U. Most of these items have not seen the light of day for at least 80 to 100 years!
We have selected the best pieces for casting in silver and various golds. Each is then polished and specially finished, and embellished with unique combinations of top-quality semi-precious gems. The result is a hybrid modern/classical jewelry that exudes timeless.All jewelry is completely original to our collection and cannot be found elsewhere!
