The word “demimonde,” French for “half-world,” is the polite 19th Century term used in the same way we use “mistress” today.

Demimonde is a line of jewelry created by Portland based artist, Rachael Donaldson. Her designs revel in our sometimes illicit affairs with the objects with which we adorn ourselves. A Fine Arts graduate of Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA, Donaldson is a self-taught jeweler who likes to think of her work as an indulgent, guilty pleasure.
