Accessories


Jewelers have always known how to invent and create other beautiful objects than jewels, and the accessories are the reflection of this. Minaudières, cigarette cases, lipstick tubes, compacts, cigarette holders, clocks, pocket watches or pocket watches, mirrors, belt buckles… All these objects are part of the daily creation of jewelry houses throughout their existence, following the periods and fashions.

Accessories are an integral part of the toilet, the trousseau and later of the emancipation of women. Taking out one’s cigarette case at the beginning of the 20th century was an act of emancipation from codes, just like wearing pants. Accessories and objects such as minaudières gradually disappeared during this period, giving way to smaller accessories such as lipstick tubes. In the same way that fans, ball books, are objects that disappear at the end of the 19th century.

These objects make it possible to locate a period precisely when they have disappeared thereafter.
