I only have eight photos for the time being to illustrate the Aquitaine region, which is quite rich in regional jewellery.  Until I manage to obtain and post some more photos, I can thoroughly recommend the book "Bijoux pyrénéens de la vallée d'Ossau" by Maïté Cauhapé.  The people of the valleys in Aquitaine are proud of their heritage and traditions and see no benefit to be gained by exposing it to outsiders.  I have had trouble getting photos of the jewellery they keep in their families.  I respect however their wish to maintain their privacy.
