A reliable object - the 24 carats necklace by Larissa Cluzet

The Mediterranean carob tree produces seeds known to have a steady weight from one to another, which is the reason why they were used as a standard to weight precious stones. If the scales have replaced the seeds, we still nowadays talk about carat to describe the mass of a gemstone. By extension, we also talk about carat to define the purity of a gold alloy. This story has been a starting point to talk about the economic value which concerns especially jewelry, from a material perspective. A reliable object is based on researches about the carob plant connected to jewelry and trade. It explores various stories in which materials are characters while the language uses measurements technologies.
