Hi all,

i will like to ask what are the differences between bijoux and bijouterie?

Oh i manage to find the difference. bijouterie is the jewelery shop selling jewelry. Thanks...

I think bijouterie might also mean articles of jewelry (un bijou would be a single article).

Also I think bijouterie would be used for the whole area of making or selling jewels.
