And in Paris, after the establishment of the Legion of Honour, the Consulate and the army require production of the decorations, which provides Arthus-Bertrand.
The French jeweler becomes a specialist in the engraving. Even today, the house produces medals and official decorations. But over time he has also added the jewelry. Again, a good part of the jewels are dedicated to significant moments at celebrations like wedding anniversary. There are, however, the jewelry to be worn every day. At Arthus-Bertrand work 250 specialized craftsmen, in particular, to realize in gold jewelry. They have nothing official, but they are very simple jewels, modern, which did not fully reflect the more than 200 years of history behind it. To know that behind there is a long history, however, it makes you appreciate more what you buy. Alessia Mongrando
