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.


Handcrafted in Limoges, France. 3" diameter x 1 1/8"W. Porcelain hand-painted with gold or platinum. Comes with a certificate of authenticity.

        Comments about Limoges Bangle Bracelets:

        This is a truly beautiful bangle bracelet, with an elegantly etched band of silver against white porcelain. It's almost too glamorous to wear to work, but the simplicity of the design allows it to go anywhere. My only problem with it is that it tends to slip down my arm and could easily fall off--however, in the winter, I can wear it over a sweater.

        This handsome handcrafted bracelet combines traditional Eastern medicine with one of the most significant mantras in Buddhism for an accent that is as meaningful as it is beautiful. Saying, or even reading, the words Om mani padme hum is believed to invoke the Buddha of Compassion, called Avalokitesvara in Sanskrit or Chenrezig in Tibetan. Some traditions within Eastern medicine use copper and brass for their purported power to alleviate arthritis and increase circulation. These two beliefs intertwine in a hand-hammered copper, brass, and white metal cuff. The Tibetan script for Om mani padme hum is overlaid on the face of the bracelet.
