chic bookmark

In a never-ending quest to find the best souvenirs with that certain 'je ne sais quoi,' we've uncovered the latest from chic silver brand Christofle. A silver-plated 'marque page' [bookmark], engraved with a portion of the Eiffel Tower. At first glance, it looks like a random, graphic pattern, but on closer inspection, it is indeed your favorite monument, complete with an oh-so-french tassle on the top to make the perfect bookmark. All that for only 35euros; available in Sacre-Coeur and Arc d'Triomphe models as well at their boutique at 9 rue Royale, 8th.
