My good friend Alexis Vourvoulis is a Graduate Gemologist and an expert on antique jewelry. I was lucky enough to accompany her on a visit to the Musée des Arts Decoratifs and she shared her wealth of knowledge with me. While, it’s unlikely most of us will ever own pieces like the ones you see in the museum, the history of French jewelry and of Paris’ famed jewelry houses is fascinating. To learn more about the best sites for jewelry lovers as well as where you can score some pieces of your own take a look at my story for HiP Paris here.
