Boucheron Paris "Épis" Gold Bracelet


This stylish gold bracelet was created by Boucheron Paris in the 1940s, at the height of the Retro period. The 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.
