This necklace is from the line Museum.

In French, the word Muséum is used only to refer to Natural History Museums; for the rest, it is called Musée. The Museums came into being in 1791, succeeding the cabinets of curiosities, in response to the need to classify in a more coherent and scientific manner the collections hitherto presented in the cabinets of curiosities.

It is this atmosphere of the Natural History Museums that the line retranscribes, through the animal kingdom represented by different species, and ancient moulded frames.
An octopus (Octopus in Latin) is represented on this necklace, in a moulded painting with Baroque or Rococo influences. Fascinating, intelligent animal, the octopus can reach extraordinary dimensions (13 m!) which make it an object of legend, like the Kraken. Tolkien, Victor Hugo, Jules Verne and many works of fantasy literature refer to it, as well as Lovecraft with the Cthulhu. Thus this mythical animal fits perfectly in the spirit of the cabinet of curiosities that this jewel wants to retranscribe.
This small octopus painting with baroque influences is signed Res Mirum on the back.

The chain slides inside one of the mouldings of the frame, but it cannot be removed; it is attached to the pendant, which is why it is a necklace. It is 45 cm long.

This chain is made of the "forçat ronde", a sturdy chain made in France.


The chain is attached to the pendant and measures 45 cm in length. The octopus element is 23 mm without the belly, 25 mm with the belly in height and 22 mm wide. The chain is made of the round forçat, a sturdy chain made in France.

Possibility to put the chain at the length of your choice, do not hesitate to ask us.
