Did you know that the world of photography represents a veritable gold mine in the history of jewels? In the nineteenth century, from the workshops on the Grands Boulevards to the World Fairs, jewels served as both frame and object of experimentation for photographers. And jewelers sublimated the art of the portrait, whether official or anonymous, as they launched new aesthetic trends and invented new styles of “photographic jewels.”
Contemporary jewelry design also pays tribute to the eye of the artist-photographer and his photographic tools.
