Rosewood is a luxury hardwood, known for its unique patterning and varying tonal qualities that range from warm brown to black. Jewelers have been exploring its possibilities since the early 20th century, when Parisian mavericks like René Boivin experimented with the wood. The 1970s saw a revival in rosewood jewelry, inspired by makers such as Van Cleef & Arpels.
