Exceptional work for an ode to beauty
Harder than horn, shinier than bone, and silkier than ivory.
The Temyris minaudière is made with galalith: milk stone from Ancient Greek: γάλα/gala, “milk” and λῐ́θος/lithos, “stone”. Galalith is a noble material. It has become the 20th century’s substitute for ivory. The use of galalith in the Temyris minaudiere reflects our respect for our legacy and convictions:
made in France, galalith is sustainable, biodegradable, anti-allergic and antistatic
Hard stone marquetry
The Medici legacy.
The ornamental marquetry on the powder compact bestows it with eternal elegance. The art of marquetry dates back to Florence in the 16th century when the Medicis were the main patrons of this refined art. Their work attracted jealous attention from European courts throughout Europe including the Habsburgs in Prague, the Bourbons in Naples and Madrid, and of course, Louis XIV in Paris.
The ancient art of the Dinandiers.
All the accessories in the Temyris minaudière – powder compact, fragrance sprays and lipsticks – are machined in brass, engraved and gilded with 24-carat fine gold. Each accessory is the result of unique quality craftsmanship inspired by high jewellery and luxury timepieces. By using infinitely recyclable brass with recyclable refills, we offer a sustainable solution.
The Art of Stone Carving
The art of carving stone is still one of the most difficult. Working hard stone is now practised in very rare, highly specialised workshops. This is how Temyris stone marquetry is made. In a secretive Parisian workshop, our lapidaries cut and adjust the most beautiful stones to make ornaments for our minaudières.
