About Pavone: Pavone jewelry pieces are fancy brooches, earrings, bracelets, and necklaces all made in Paris using ancient techniques of handcrafted Galalith, bakelite, and lucite. Galalith is the most used material in the creation of Pavone jewelry. Galalith is made from the casein of milk hence its name, "gala" (milk) and lithos (stone). Discovered at the end of the 19th century, it is the ancestor of plastics. The work of Galalith is similar to woodworking for cutting and sanding but also requires different impregnating and polishing phases to give it a shiny and deep iridescent silky appearance. Galalith has the immense possibilities of being colored in an infinite palette of bright or soft hues, light or dark. Each item is entirely handmade and requires up to three weeks of work for its realization. The magic Marie-Christine puts into her Galalith items, the liveliness it brings is her trademark, they cannot be mistaken.
The creation of Pavone jewels began more than twenty years ago, trends and styles mixing old and new. Each item is signed and has a name; it is a unique and rare jewel, that can bring a very personal and original touch to your outfit.
Very good vintage condition, with quite a bit tiny scratches to the red Galalith surface. Clean and ready for wear or gifting. Gift wrap is available as an option.
