Although Bourbon jewellery does not have a high value as far as the materials are concerned, they feature very high-quality craftsmanship. In general, the gold content is never very high, but it is not always easy to define the carat weight of items of jewellery from the Bourbon period, as each goldsmith had his own personal 'recipe' for the gold. However, these are still rare and precious items of jewellery, which deserve to be worn with pride.
