The Poulat Style has a rich history in Mexico's silver jewelry renaissance. These designs have been handcrafted by some of Mexico's finest artisans.Celebrated jewelry designer Matilde Poulat first trained as a painter at the San Carlos Academy of Fine Arts in Mexico City alongside famed Mexican muralist Diego Rivera. She opened her own silver design taller (workshop) in 1934 under the mark of “Matl” which is derived from the Aztec word for “water”. Her pieces were heavily inspired by baroque detail work as well as by the feminine colors of Mexico, often using amethyst, turquoise and coral as accents.
