Sport and patriotic jewelry

When sport becomes jewelry, we wear it and show it off.
While sport and jewelry rarely go hand in hand, the love of sport can be worn and offer a beautiful tribute to the various disciplines.
To mark the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, we’ve put together a collection of jewelry that pays tribute to sport, athletes and France. Whether you’re into tennis, rugby, windsurfing or horse-riding, you’ll be able to offer, or treat yourself to, the jewel that suits you best.

  • Antique swimmer medal pendantMédaille nageur bijou sportif Out of Stock

    Art Deco swimming medal in gilded silver 800 thousandths (vermeil). Medal with a sports theme depicting a swimmer practicing crawl in the sea (known as “open water”). The reverse of the medal is decorated with a blank cartouche surrounded by a laurel wreath. Swimming has been part of the Summer Olympic Games program since the first modern Olympic Games in 1896.

Antique medal, circa 1900, signed S.J. Sport jewelry collection.
