Marzo Paris Lapis Lazuli Bead Bracelet


This 1930s lapis lazuli bead bracelet by Marzo Paris is a miniature Art Moderne study of geometry and volume. The bracelet is both sculptural and playful, drawing the eye with its contrast of two rows of gold beads surrounding a central row of royal blue lapis lazuli beads gleaming with pyrite, showcasing polished versus matte textures, and reflections versus shadows. The firm’s consistent dedication to art and design in all their work means this bracelet has remained stylish and contemporary to this day.
