Les Georgettes: over a century of savoir-faire
The collection by Les Georgettes, a creation of nothing less than France's number one costume jewellery factory Maison Altesse, in collaboration with Textier, the famous Breton leather goods brand, will astound you at VICENZAORO September 2018.
It all began in 1905 in the heart of the Marias area at 62 rue Charlot in Paris when the young and talented artisan, Marius Legros, decided to create his own costume jewellery line. In 1912, the jeweller joined his family in Saint-Martin-De-Valamas, in the Ardeche valley, where he soon opened his own factory.
Nowadays the Altesse company, one of the largest costume jewellery manufacturers in France, employs over 250 workers, creating and selling gold, silver and gold and silver-plated jewellery in over 60 countries worldwide.
The Les Georgettes collection comes into this field: an innovative, registered and patented concept of personalizable bijoux finished with interchangeable and reversible leather. Like a game of creating one's own jewellery. In fact, in a few seconds the leather band can be changed or inverted thus personalizing the item according to look, bag or, why not, even mood.
Hand-crafted jewellery that enhances the beauty of the rigid personalizable bracelet in a vast range of colours and skins, thanks to the collaboration of one of the most famous French leather goods companies. But the offer is not limited to bracelets: there are also highly colourful rings, pendants and necklaces of different sizes and thicknesses. For those who love to be unconventional but classy.
