Ancient jewelry on Caillou

Having worked in communications for a number of contemporary jewelery designers, Anne-Lise Delsol launched Caillou. On this site, she sells her selection of antique pieces exclusively from professional dealers. “All those years of walking around antique fairs with my collector father suddenly caught up with me!” Her sharp eye falls  mainly on delicate jewelry of charm and finesse, with a beautiful choice of earrings and engagement rings. Other irresistible treasures to be discovered at Caillou : “Les Réinventés” collection including the solo earrings that Anne-Lise Delsol makes from elements adorning tiepins that have fallen into disuse. Spellbinding.

Budget between €250 and €3500.
