Installed in the former antique store of the singer Suzy Solidor, the museum of contemporary jewelry offers the general public to discover this art that avant-garde creators, from France and elsewhere raise every day to the highest level.

While the temporary exhibitions allow visitors to discover the world of one or more artists around a theme, the permanent collection, with its 300 pieces, already outlines a history of contemporary jewelry, which began in the 1960s.

In 1995, the city was awarded the label “Ville et métiers d’art” for its action in favor of contemporary jewelry. Cagnes-sur-Mer is the only city in France to be certified for this activity.
