MOTCACHÉ tells a story.
A story that began a long time ago in the eighteenth century in France, where a court goldsmith gives life to a new language: the one of precious stones. This story is made up of words, hidden words within colored gems, which contain in their turn, infinite meanings.
MOTCACHÉ is inspired by the ancient art of messages hidden in precious stones, to give shape to a collection of handmade jewels, which combines the codes of matter and color with the intrinsic need in each of us to communicate our feelings to the outside world, imprinting them in time. In this way every jewel, made of 9 or 18 carat gold, becomes the guardian of secrets and emotions, to be preserved or shared with those around us.
