    This delicate bracelet demonstrates excellent workmanship in its organic design. With intricate enamel leaves and undulating diamond-set flowers, it is an understated piece of jewellery that can be a good match to many outfits. What really makes this bracelet unique is the enamelling, an art that has been practiced since ancient times. It is a decoration technique where powdered glass is fused to metal surfaces through a firing process. Though it was mostly used on jewellery during the turn of the century, the art is still creatively applied in designs from the world’s top jewellers. This bracelet from Boucheron, which is emblematic of 1960s design, remains a highly wearable and contemporary masterpiece for the 21st century jewellery connoisseurs.
