To educate the public to contemporary jewellery, ALLIAGES started a private collection transmitted this year to the museum selected. From its creation up to now, ALLIAGES has promoted this collection and the artists which are part of it, using virtual or physical networks. To promote & recompense the jewellers, ALLIAGES created its Award for Contemporary Jewellery.
