Bijoux parisiens: French Jewelry from the Petit Palais, Paris bring to Memphis iconic and inimitable jewels from the famous jewelry houses of Falize, Boucheron, Lalique, Cartier, and others.

Bijoux parisiens features nearly seventy works of jewelry and over 200 design paintings, fashion prints, and photographs, tracing changing styles from the Neoclassicism of the Napoleonic era, through the Art Deco.

Rubies, sapphires, diamonds, and emeralds sparkle in brooches, necklaces, and earrings, but also in elegant paintings of jewelry design. The exhibition fuses fashion, art, and history through beautiful suites of objects. Bijoux parisiens illustrates the exhibitions,
events, and influences that helped establish the great Parisian maisons that are household names today.
