Circa the 1910s, René Boivin changed his style and diversified his sources of inspiration, never hesitating to mix genres. Borrowing from Cubism, abstract art and even antiquity, he created powerful minimalist pieces of jewelry nicknamed ‘barbarian jewelry’, which distinguished him from other jewelers of the time. He designed his pieces like works of art and worked mainly on commission. Brooch, Antiques, Art, Instagram, Inspiration, Jewellery, Accessories, Style, Jewelry
