Across Luberon valley, sits the city of Avignon. Full of rich history and gorgeous river views, this city is a mecca for tourists as they traverse the Provencal countryside. In Avignon, the architecture is reminiscent of the time period - cobblestones, massive structures, fortified walls - but serving as the center for the "Palais des Papes" (the palace of the Pope in the 14th century), this city contains a different flair and feel.
One will notice an infusion of Medieval Gothic details in the design and with that, more curves, arches and flowing lines contrast the bold, strong and straight lines.
Inspired by this historic city, our Avignon pieces draw on the rounded forms that make their presence known in the city of the "Papal Residence". Pair this beauty with a coordinating pair of our Avignon earrings for completely refined look.
Stroll through Kristen Baird® Jewelry’s newest jewelry-design collection, influenced by her whimsical, summer days spent in LaCoste, France. Gather vibrant flowers from a weekly, spirited provincial market. Duck behind colorful, medieval-arched doorways for an elusive embrace. Brush fingertips against ancient Roman castle walls—laced with fragile blooms, endless vines and romantic peepholes revealing the bold, organic palette of the valley below. Experience low-hanging branches bursting with deep-pink cherry blossoms, a patchwork quilt of bright emerald olive orchards and brilliant lavender fields awoken by buzzing bees in a sophisticated collection that bares every sensation imaginable—the Bonjour Belle Collection.

At Kristen Baird® Jewelry, we use partially to fully recycled sterling silver. The 18K gold used is certified 100% recycled and the gemstones we use are carefully selected in line with our commitment to social responsibility. Each piece is precisely handcrafted in our Savannah, GA studio, using a metalsmithing process called reticulation. As proof of authenticity, each piece is stamped with the .925 quality mark and whenever possible, is signed/marked with the Kristen Baird® maker’s mark, prior to delivery.
Due to the natural characteristics of handcrafted designs, each piece may contain slight variances from the photos shown. These variances allow uniqueness in every creation, but never take away from the quality of work or the complexity of design.
