Bijoux d’art(s) et d’histoire(s) exhibition

For two days, Marc Auclert presents jewelry pieces from two other Parisian addresses in his showroom: the galleries miniMASTERPIECE and Les Enluminures. His own rings, necklaces and earrings made up of antique elements such as Roman intaglio, old crystal and menuki are contrasted with contemporary designers’ pieces edited by Esther de Beaucé, and these sit alongside medieval rings from Sandra Hindman’s collection. This confrontation shows how different worlds and styles, which often don’t see eye-to-eye, can appeal to the same audience.

Bijoux d’art(s) et d’histoire(s)” exhibition on June 21st and 22nd 2017 at Maison Marc Auclert.
