A luxury bracelet is characterized by the craftsmanship of the jeweler and the nobility of the materials. The House of Hermes, in particular, has made the leather bracelet an object of desire, using swift calf leather to create iconic pieces. The Collier de chien bracelet with its four domed faceted studs is undoubtedly the best example.
Made of silver or gold, the gourmette is a masculine bracelet - although also appreciated by some women - that appeared in the 1950s, with its flattened chain and its engraved plate. Popularized by James Dean, Elvis Presley and other Jean-Paul Belmondo, it is a bit out of fashion but remains an event jewel offered on Christian holidays.
