Fallen Aristocrat is inspired by travel, history, and imperfect things that tell a story. Handmade in the United States, the jewelry is cast in brass and luxuriously plated in 18-karat gold, then given a special finish for a storied look of time.

Designer Paula Danyluk, owner of the Paris Market, has long been drawn to things with a past. Musing on her own personal collection of vintage charms and French coins, she set out to create a new generation of heirlooms by creating pieces that feel at once extravagant and everyday, modern with a vintage appeal.

The debut collection of Fallen Aristocrat is named the First Empire and features four series: Bonaparte, Romonov, Museum, and Lover’s Eye. Shop here.
