Our jewelry creation activity leads us to reproduce from time to time copies of old jewelry.

These reproductions, faithful or inspired by ancient jewelry designs allow us to dive into ancient cultures and sometimes rediscover ancient manufacturing methods.

We offer you a small overview of the different jewelry reproduction projects that we have been able to carry out since 2012.

Reproduction of ethnic antique jewelry

Since our jewelry shop is located in Mexico, it was normal for us to focus on making antique Mexican jewelry and pre-Columbian jewelry.

Mexican ring 

So we created this Mexican ring taking the tradition of the Mexican Calavera, the famous joyful skull symbolizing the reunion with the dead.

This Mexican ring is from our collection, you can find it here.

Maya jewelry collection

We also launched a collection of Mayan jewels, echoing the style of pre-Columbian jewelry.

Made in silver, turquoise or jade, they are inspired by the style of Mayan jewels and other Amerindian ethnic groups prior to the colonization of Mexico.

Celtic or Breton antique jewelry

Triskele is an ancient symbol that is frequently found in both Breton and Celtic culture. It also seems that it shows well before the Celtic culture since we find traces dating back over 4000 years (see the triskele on wikipedia)

This Celtic-inspired arm bracelet features the triskel symbol.

This silver signet ring takes on Breton symbology with this triskel in 18-karat gold over-thickness of the ring top.

Vintage earrings

These silver earrings were made of repousse silver, a technique practiced in the past which is not too current in jewelry.

We have reproduced it by traditional means, so you can observe the final rendering compared to the original model.

Ancient Berber jewel

The hand of Fatma is a symbol of the Berber goddess Tanit that is often found in the Eastern and North African culture (Morocco, Egypt and Tuareg ...).
