Mammoth Bracelet

 

Each hand-braided bracelet consists of 4 strands of 25 hairs each.  Mounted on an 18-carat gold clasp, this precious ice-air jeweller exists with different variations of ivory and gold.  The 45,000-year-old hairs were carbon-14 dated by the CIRAM laboratory. 


Preparation and maintenance

This mammoth hair bracelet is handmade in our workshop in Monaco since 1928.  We called on a craftsman specialized in mammoth ivory to create this sculpture that reproduces the oldest representation of mammoth found in the Vogelherd cave.

Global warming is thawing vast territories that have been frozen for thousands of years. Mammoth carcasses are discovered every year.

It is therefore possible to discover nearby skeletons still intact hair. After months of research, we collected a few grams of hair, and among a large number of bristles of very good quality hairs kept in their entire length.
