For this new collection, Caroline was inspired by this iconic emblem of the Totem, the protective symbol of your family, your clan...
She worked with a workshop mastering craftsmanship to develop these fully modular pendants.
Each Totem is composed of several precious modules, in turn entirely engraved, set or enamelled by hand, which you can combine and personalize to your image.
The modules composed of fine stones will bring you the energy and the color that Caroline associates with happiness.
A symbolic and protective pendant, a sculptural jewel: the Totem of your own tribe.
Totem Lotus is made of turquoise, red and white enamel, small colored gemstones on a ring gilded with fine gold.
What material is used for Caroline de Benoist jewelry?
All Caroline de Benoist jewelry is made of brass, gilded with 24-carat gold, enameled and set by hand.
How can I keep my Caroline de Benoist jewelry as long as possible?
To preserve your jewels for as long as possible, store them separately in a fabric pouch (like the one you receive with each piece of Caroline de Benoist jewelry).
Gilded brass jewelry can oxidize over time if exposed to light.
Avoid contact with water and humidity.
Perfume, alcohol, hydro-alcoholic gel, salt water, lemon, chlorine and other chemicals are also harmful to your jewelry.
Make sure you apply perfume and make-up beforehand, and remove your gold-plated brass rings before washing your hands or using hydro-alcoholic gel.
We also recommend storing your Caroline de Benoist jewelry in its individual fabric pouch before going to bed or exercising.
For textiles :
