The story: The Byzantine style in jewelry reflects a rich fusion of cultural influences from the Byzantine Empire, spanning from the 4th to the 15th centuries. Characterized by intricate craftsmanship and opulent designs, Byzantine jewelry captures the essence of this historical era. Gold is painstakingly worked into patterns of geometric shapes, intricate filigree and sometimes religious symbols. Although the Byzantine style in jewelry is not directly associated with France, elements of Byzantine design and motifs were later incorporated into French jewelry during periods of resurgence of historical styles, particularly in the nineteenth century.
