About the jewels…
Perle du Bois is a collection of handcrafted jewelry, combining original antique art medals from Europe, South America, Asia and the USA, with exotic hand turned wood beads, vintage chains, silver, antique ivory, carnelian, and other semi precious stones. Many of the art medals originate from the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods, designed and engraved by the likes of JC Chaplain, Oscar Roty, Daniel DuPuis, Paul DeVreese, and other leading Medalists of the day.
Collectors of Perle du Bois appreciate the beauty, timeless style, story and inherent value of the pieces.
Each piece tells a story.
