For over fifty years, Bijouterie Delavest has been specialised in jewellery that is typical of the Savoie region in France.

They are unique items or small series of 5 to 10 items. Delavest jewellery is made using traditional and original techniques from the 18th century. The jewellery is decorated with floral elements, cut out of gold leaf or with the use of cutting punches made by the manager.

 

These elements differ from each other with varying shades of gold:  green, grey and pink. These colours are obtained through different alloys of copper, nickel and silver. Research carried out by Bijouterie Delavest has identified different styles of jewellery depending on the valleys and the many jewellers of the time.

 

Items are sold at the workshop boutique. More modern jewellery, based on antique models, is also made by the company.
