Footnotes

  • The use of seed pearls in fine jewellery and watches was extremely popular in the 1800's. Prestigious jewellers such as Cartier, Tiffany and Faberge decorated their pieces with tiny pearls to match the opulence of the time.

    Jean-François Bautte (1772-1837) and Gabriel Moynier were two prominent Swiss goldsmiths, who created incredible watches, jewellery and objects of vertu. Jean-François Bautte is widely thought to be one of the inventors of the extra-thin watch.
