French handmade jewels…
Recognized for the quality of its reproductions and adaptations of retro-style jewelry, for its incomparable know-how in coloring techniques, the AU BOUT DES RÊVES brand owes its notoriety to many years of creating high-end costume jewelry. . The collections, very inspired by Art Nouveau, are entirely handmade in the workshop located in the heart of France.
Each piece of jewelry is made from stamped (a low relief metal pattern made by striking or pressing from an engraved steel mold). The raw piece is then covered with a layer of arent (silver-plated label), then hours of meticulous work will be necessary for the birth of a piece of jewelry.
Stained glass effect
It is a jealously guarded secret … a recipe that has been passed down from generation to generation and of which AU BOUT DES REVES has perpetuated the know-how for more than 30 years.
The art of enhancing jewelry with color and transparency.
The filigree piece is adorned with color which gives it a unique luminosity in the manner of stained glass. The jewelry then changes color according to the intensity of the light and is incredibly light.
The enamel-style painting allows us to keep all the finesse of the pieces while bringing them shine and shine.
Our jewelry is adorned with enamel-style lacquered colors. All colors are imagined in our color workshop and we can meet any request. We make our mixtures from pigments and mother-of-pearl allowing us to create original and more or less pearly colors.
Silver, brass, plated….
Our jewelry is made on a base of brass, copper or pewter and then plated with a layer of silver (layer of 9 microns of pure silver depending on the piece). Brass colored models are also plated with a brass electrolysis treatment.
We work with French service providers recognized for the quality of their silver plating, which allows us to display a real “MADE IN FRANCE”.
Our jewelry is made according to European standards in order to limit the risk of allergy.
