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 century. Characterized by intricate craftsmanship and opulent designs, Byzantine jewelry captures the essence of this historical era. Gold and precious stones are meticulously crafted into patterns of geometric shapes, intricate watermarks and 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, especially in the nineteenth century.
