The city of Limoges, in west-central France, has been synonymous with exquisite porcelain since the late 18th century, when kaolin clay was found in the area. All porcelain is a type of ceramic, but only ceramics made using soft, white kaolin clay can be called porcelain.
Limoges porcelain is most often used for fine china table settings and decorative arts. But jeweler Bruno Mercier uses it the way others might use precious metals or rare gems. Each of these strikingly simple bracelets features smooth white porcelain encircled with a floral pattern hand-painted in gold or platinum.
