    The jewelry house creates feminine, fashionable, and decidedly French-style fine jewelry. Among its greatest achievements is the invention of the “mystery” setting featuring diamonds, rubies, and sapphires meticulously set against one another without any visible metal; it remains one of the house’s most desired creations. Signature Style: The lucky Alhambra four-leaf clover in a range of designs; feminine, light, jeweled butterflies; floral designs; and fairies.
