One of my favorite designers ever, his creativity is amazing. In a time of pillbox hats and structured handbags, his designs used metal, paper and other unusual materials and were anything but conventional.
Modernist, Futuristic and without match even today.
Born in Spain, he fled to France with his mother when the Spanish Civil War broke out. His original education was in Architecture (well, like me!)
Paco Rabanne designed the costumes for the movie Barbarella with Jane Fonda.
He designs to this day and has published books on Spirituality.
Luckily models don't dance like this anymore. Anyway, a taste of vintage Paco Rabanne, enjoy!

This information is intended to help you understand our sizing methods.
Please note many small measurements are in millimeters. It is a Jewelry Industry standard for accuracy.
You can download and print the Ring Sizing Chart. Make sure to follow the directions closely for best accuracy. Most rings can be re-sized unless otherwise noted. The cost of sizing is not included, please inquire with ring information and size required for an estimate.
Our model's hand is approximately 5" wide or 12 cm as seen in this image:
We measure bracelets based on their wearable length, not the actual length. We do this because chunky bracelets will have a smaller wearable length than the actual length as the thickness of the bracelet reduces the internal measurement. If at any time you would like the actual length and is not in the description, please feel free to contact us.
