Burma and its "Art deco" collection

Given that the maison Burma first came into being in 1927, it’s only natural that Alexandra Zarcate is inspired by Art deco. For her second collection, the brand’s new artistic director has delved into the archives rich in geometric pieces, earrings, chokers and cuffs – large bracelets worn higher up the arm. All these jewelry pieces are made of burmalite, Burma‘s specialty synthetic stone, and so are affordably priced between 850 and 4,900 euros.
