Lot Essay


Gabriel Falguiéres, a highly skilled jeweler, produced jewelry for a number of important Parisian firms during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. During the Art Nouveau period, while other designers focused on enamel and glass, Falguiéres continued to incorporate diamonds to bring his creations to life.
