Franz Collection Jewelry offers exquisite forms with distinct styles. Following the tremendous success of Franz porcelain tableware, a new line of jewelry by Franz Collection was unveiled in the Spring of 2004. This collection, named Franz Jewelry was inspired by the delicate curves, intricate details and fabulous colors of the highly successful Franz porcelain items. The design concepts of Franz porcelain are extended into the Franz jewelry collection. A group of talented artists and experienced craftsmen together have cast their dreams and created this lively and elegant art form. Wearing a piece of Franz Jewelry is wearing a piece of contemporary art. Most pieces are plated in Rhodium, which is the second most valuable metal in the world behind platinum.
