Boucheron Paris 18K Gold "Palmettes" Gold Bracelet

This stylish gold "Palmettes" bracelet was created by Boucheron Paris circa 1945, at the height of the Retro period. The broad, modeled, high-relief bracelet is designed as a series of stylized palmette form and triangular links. Streamlined and volumized, this beautifully articulated bracelet represents Maison Boucheron’s traditional naturalism, brilliantly updated and abstracted for the modern sensibility.
