Henri Picq's workshop, located in the Marais district of Paris, was one of the most important workshops in Paris from the early 20thCentury through the late 1920's. He produced some of the highest quality gem-set platinum jewels of the period. Among other houses, Picq worked for Cartier, becoming their main supplier between 1900 and 1918. These jewels were said to be the finest in Paris, and it was the workshop of Henri Picq that became famed for the quality of this jewelry. Picq was instrumental in the use of novel materials and executed some of Cartier's most avant-gard designs, especially the beautifully-produced Cartier 'Tutti Frutti' jewels, described at the time as 'pierres de couleur' and which continue to endure. He also produced a bracelet designed and exhibited at the revolutionary Paris Exposition Universelle in 1925.
