The noble debut of Persan & Bellefond

A new jewelry brand based in Paris has been born: Persan & Bellefond. The brand was founded by Guy Jourdier, an expert in the sector: he has been a consultant specialized in the jewelery and diamond sector for years, as well as having held the position of associate director of Bellon & Fils, a third-party jewelery manufacturer. Jourdier is also president of Richemont & Jourdier, the company that controls the new brand. In short, a professional who knows the market well.

Persan & Bellefond is a new adventure that aims to win not only the favor of Parisians, but also of women from other European countries. The style of the jewelery is innovative and includes the use of colored ceramic together with gold and diamonds. The name of the Maison also derives from the collaboration of a Parisian couple, an artist fascinated by colors and design, and a professional with over twenty years of experience, Guy Jourdier. But also the union of two distinctive families with a long history behind them: the Doublet de Persan and the Gautier de Bellefond. The logo with three dragonflies symbolizes the heraldry of the founding families.

The march of Kiros

From India to Paris: Kiros multiplies and also expands the amount of fantasy in its collections.
From Jaipur to Mumbai. From Mumbai to Paris. And after Paris, Madrid. And then also in other cities, Hong Kong, and the United States. It cannot be said that Manish Jain does not have a spirit of initiative. Together with Yacine Challal he founded the Kiros Jewels brand and then Kiros Paris. Partners are Kgk Creations, a company of the Kgk Diamonds group, with over 100 years of experience in the production and distribution of jewellery, Gemco, a company known for innovative designs, while Yacine Challal is an entrepreneur, designer and jewelery enthusiast. Objective: to seek a path distinct from that of used and abused styles.

An unusual style choice, but with absolutely traditional materials: pink or white gold, diamonds. A Parisian taste is perceptible, even if the jewelry is manufactured in India. In short, a product of globalization that knows no borders, not even those of the style, which is absolutely versatile. Where it will arrive?

The precious dreams of Morphée

The refined collections of Morphée Joaillerie.

Morpheus is a myth associated with sleep, peace and tranquility. But in the jewelery shop he evokes a Parisian Maison («a few steps from the famous Place Vendôme») that wants to «crystallize the dreams of mankind through the use of gold and precious stones». Morphée Joaillerie, on the other hand, arose from the dreams of Belgian designer Pamela Hastry. Her jewels are limited edition, just like the wishes that can be realized, but with the possibility of producing them to measure. Pamela learned her trade in London, refined it in Rome, and sells it in Paris. Ah, Pamela Hastry is also a gemologist. In short, a first class trip.

Skilled French artisans transform her ideas into collections based on cherry blossoms, butterflies, buttercups and forget-me-nots. But also Make a Wish or Millésime. If the ingredients on Morphée’s menu are not surprising (gold, precious stones), the lightness and composition of the individual pieces are completely original. A symbolic collection, in the high jewelery line, is Florealis, which uses diamonds and rubellite for jewels inspired by the delicate and complicated patterns of flowers. The Maison also recently renewed its website.

The historic Vever brand returns in Paris

In Paris there is a new old Maison: Vever. New because it was just opened a couple of years ago in the Place Vendôme area by Camille and Damien Vever. Old because the founders are the heirs of Henri Jean Baptiste Eugène Vever (1854-1954), French jeweler, writer and art collector, protagonist of the Art Nouveau and Belle Epoque period. Camille Vever has chosen to enter the world of jewelry thanks to a brooch, obviously signed Vever, donated by her grandmother for her 16th birthday. After much deliberation, at the age of 40 she decided to leave the post of general manager of a biopharmaceutical company and enlisted one of his brothers.

Ginko ring in white gold and synthetic blue diamond

The Maison founded by his grandfather had remained active until 1982. Now it receives a new impulse. But in a completely new situation from a century ago, Vever’s guidelines have also changed from the past. For example, the Maison has decided to use only recycled gold and synthetic diamonds to respect the environment. At its debut Vever presents two lines of high jewelery and fine jewelry: rings, necklaces and bracelets reflect two different aesthetics, one reminiscent of historical jewels with the use of enamel, Akoya pearls and baroque shapes, while another line is more modern with simple and soft shapes, alongside a more elaborate collection inspired by Ginko flowers.

Graff in yellow in Paris

Sunrise: A Celebration of Graff Yellow Diamonds. Those who love yellow diamonds already know which door to knock on. But it is not that of the London flagship store, where Graff is based, one of the most famous brands for its range of diamond jewellery, also in the yellow version. The British jeweler has instead chosen the Paris store in Rue Saint-Honoré to exhibit his collection of yellow diamonds in a short exhibition. Alongside historical pieces, Graff also proposed a novelty: an exceptional high jewelery necklace.

Sunrise Graff Yellow Diamond Necklace
Sunrise Graff Yellow Diamond Necklace

It is a necklace that is worth a seven-figure and is composed of a 30-carat fancy intense yellow pear-shaped diamond, extremely rare, accompanied by another 138 carats of yellow and white diamonds. In addition to being an extremely precious jewel, the necklace is also the result of a long process. Each element has been created with careful craftsmanship with the aim of bringing out the central stone. Graff is a Maison famous for its yellow diamonds, such as the one called Stella di Bombay, purchased in 1974, a historic yellow stone cut and polished by Graff using innovative techniques for the time. Or Delaire Sunrise, a 118.08-carat diamond, or the Golden Empress, a 132.55-carat honey-colored diamond.

The Nuun geometries

Nuun’s jewels in Paris: geometries and high jewelry inspired by nature with a truly personal style ♦

Nuun Jewels opened its first store in Paris, in the rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré, the classic street of jewelers, next to the famous Place Vêndome.  Soul and mind of the new Maison is Noorah Al Faisal, grew up in the Middle East and Europe. “It was my mother who taught me that jewelry is art, a form of deep and moving expression as a painting or sculpture,” she says.

Anello in oro giallo e diamanti
Ring in yellow gold and diamonds

After graduating in English literature at King Saud University, followed by a brief experience in interior design, Noorah was dedicated to the world of fine jewelery. She learned the craft from Georland, a fine jewelry workshop in Paris famous among fans. Then, she started drawing the first jewels. The breakthrough came when Noorah was invited to take part in a small exhibition in a London gallery.

A few months later, in the fall of 2014, she launched Nuun Jewels. For the first collection created 24 unique pieces inspired by nature. But they are the geometric patterns, so characteristic of Oriental art, the real stars. Nothing exotic, though. Music, nature and architecture are the three main inspirations. For example, in the T-shaped jewelry bracelet and necklace Tuwaiq. Or in Banajir collection, composed of metal bracelets in four colors (white, yellow, black or pink) that can fit together to form multi-layered volumes. East and West are sometimes very close.

The Gringoire jewels

The jewels of the French Maison Gringoire, a Parisian with a century and a half of history ♦ ︎
“I wrote silences, nights, I noticed the inexpressible, I stared dizzy.” While Arthur Rimbaud, one of the great French poets of the late nineteenth century, wrote these words, in Paris at number 79 of rue de Turbigo, in Paris, a new brand of jewelry was born. It was founded in 1880 by Achille Hourdequin. After the founder’s sudden death in 1942, Gérard Gringoire, the son-in-law, took over the company, along with his wife, Edith Hourdequin. The company has been successful.

Today around 500 jewelers in France distribute the H. Gringoire brand. Not only that: the Maison’s jewels are also distributed in Southeast Asia, the Middle East and the United States. After almost a century and a half, in short, Gringoire Joaillier is still a Maison that focuses on high quality jewelry, often with large colored stones, such as amethysts, topazes and citrines, surrounded by diamonds.

Serendipity high jewelery between waves and Monet

Serendipity is an unplanned lucky discovery, and for this reason the sea can be one of the places to find it. Serendipity Jewelry is the brand founded in Paris in 2017 by Christine Chen, who discovered her passion for stones over ten years ago, on the occasion of a trip to Australia, and thanks to a chance encounter, which suggested the name of the Maison . Now the designer combines the concept of surprise with that of waves, but not only, just in time for the move to 16 Place Vendôme.

A line of new jewels is dedicated to the ocean and is called Riding the wave. Part of this series is a necklace inlaid with diamonds to resemble rolling waves, with a drop-shaped crystal aqua hanging below and a white Australian pearl dotting between. In addition, the lapis lazuli bead tassel also adds a unique sparkle to the luster of the shimmering necklace. A ring reproduces the soft waves of the sea with small pavé diamonds and a pearl in the centre.

The Secret d’Iris collection is instead inspired by the flower which has been the national symbol of France since the Middle Ages. This collection includes a necklace worked as if it were lace, with pink tourmaline and a pair of earrings. Platinum and diamonds seem to become hand-embroidered lace. It’s always France that inspired Monet’s The Gardens of Secret d’Iris earrings. The impressionist painter painted flowers in paintings from his last period. Serendipity transforms the garden into earrings with tanzanites, tourmalines, aquamarines, sapphires, amethysts, tsavorites, purple sapphires.

Viltier, the new jewels made in Paris

The pair have two 24-karat names: Iris de La Villardière and Thomas Montier Leboucher. They have been friends since childhood and have a common passion for jewelry. Together they created a new brand in Paris: Viltier. Behind them they have two different experiences in the world of jewelry: Stone Paris for Iris and Cartier London for Thomas. They started from one point: all Viltier creations are Fairmined certified, that is, with sustainable gold. In addition, the jewelry is designed and handcrafted in Paris, with stones that come from conflict-free countries with socially responsible origin. Paradoxically, it was also the covid epidemic that accelerated the project of the founding couple.

The division of duties requires that the jewelry designs are taken care of by Iris, while the management of stones and gold is entrusted to Thomas. The jewels play creatively with geometry. The rings that form a chain are processed and transformed with the addition of diamonds, mother-of-pearl, malachite or bull’s-eye, the name of a variety of quartz with a brown-golden color.

New Postcards from India by Lydia Courteille

Return to India with Lydia Courteille. The Parisian artist-designer, a great and tireless traveler, adds new pieces to her Indian Song collection, a diary made up of images transformed into jewels, a reminder of her tour in the great Asian country of the French creator. The collection, presented in 2022, is thus enriched with new sculpture-pieces, in the imaginative and eclectic style that distinguishes Lydia Courteille. The additions are precious and particularly elaborate. Rings and bracelets are not only inspired by Indian monuments or icons, but are transfigured with an inimitable goldsmith’s virtuosity.

Marion Vidal, new architectures




The new bijoux-designs by the French designer and architect Marion Vidal  ♦︎

Take a few ceramic elements, add small Carrara marble segments and join them with plexiglas thermoformed and hand polished in the South of France. Now sauté with gilt brass and, if necessary, a dash of vermeil. Mix well and, if you have carefully followed Marion Vidal’s recipe, you will obtain a pleasant, modern, lively jewel.

But, in fact, if you really want to imitate the French designer, you also need an architecture degree, like that of Marion Vidal, who interprets her bijoux as if they were compositions of elements from which a project for a monument, a house, a cathedral must arise . Made, however, according to the most essential, almost subversive philosophy of architecture. Imagine, therefore, conceiving a jewel by carefully studying surfaces and volumes, weight and shades, without considering the addition of secondary, redundant details. It is the goal that Marion Vidal has reached, and that is repeated with the new collections.

Marion Vidal’s jewels can be found in her boutique in Paris, but also in the online shop on the site, as well as in various cities of the world, from Los Angeles to Seoul, in the shops of some stylists (Paul Smith in London, Christian Wijnants in Antwerp ), and even in museums (Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris or in jewelery galleries (Macle in Beyrouth).

Colors and gems by Anaïs Rheiner




Jewels in gold and precious stones, but above all seen through the eyes of those who have long lived in Africa, such as Anaïs Rheiner ♦

Anaïs Reiner is Swiss, but has long lived in Africa, first in Zimbabwe and then in South Africa. She opened its first store in Mozambique, in 2002. “I love this country, with colonial houses faded by years of war. But Zimbabwe was at that time still too poor. “After she moved, the violence has made escape from South Africa and she moved in the friendly France, in Paris, where he opened his boutique-laboratory in a small street 6, rue Cardinal.

Her jewels reflect the strange aspects of the African continent: brightness and great contradictions. In addition, a certain hardness and at the same time hidden wealth: Zimbabwe emeralds, pearls, diamonds and, of course, so much gold. A set that has made a success of the designer, time ago, to Révélation, the exhibition dedicated to the art of creation staged at the Grand Palais in Paris.

New fruits in Gucci’s Hortus Deliciarum




Hortus deliciarum (Garden of Delights) is the title of a medieval manuscript by Herrad of Landsberg, located in the abbey of Hohenburg, in Alsace, better known as Mont Sainte-Odile. The manuscript contained at least 20 song lyrics (only two survive), all originally notated for the music. But Hortus deliciarum is also the name of countless jewelry collections, to which Gucci’s high jewelry is now added. The novelties of the collection, anticipated in June 2022, were presented during the couture week in Paris.

Colors, geometric designs, fantasy: instead of the notes, Gucci has used the tools of jewelry, with stones in dazzling colors, such as rubellite, amethyst, mandarin garnet and emerald, in addition to the classic diamonds. The design of the necklaces, earrings and bracelets is also inspired by a geometric motif taken from ancient Rome, such as the chains with hexagonal rings. Or with a so-called chevron motif, as in the yellow gold bracelet, with diamonds and an oval-shaped 16-carat rubellite tourmaline: a jewel that, Gucci points out, takes 200 hours to make.

Korloff from black to pink




The Luna collection by the Parisian brand Korloff: gold, diamonds and many rounded geometries ♦

Hold a record is a good starting point, even for the jewels: the Parisian brand Korloff can boast of a record not little, that of the largest black diamond in the world, the 88 carat weight, cut with 57 perfect edges. It is insured for $ 37 million. The Korloff Black is the soul and symbol of society and it is showed around the world for decades.

But of course, the Maison also offers a lot of other jewels.

Anyway, it all started in 1978, when Daniel Paillasseur conceived the brand Korloff Paris, inspired in part by the journey of Korloff family Sapojnikov from Russia to France. In the nineteenth century this precious stone belonged for several generations to the Russian family of Karloff-Sapozhnikov. And according to legend, the Karloff Noir brings good luck and prosperity to those who touch it. Apart from the black diamond that has given him fame, the Parisian brand produces high-level jewelry, as well as watches and other luxury products, such as perfumes. Korloff has 50 boutiques around the world.

The new bijoux by Aurélie Bidermann




Art lover, model, traveller. But, above all, one of the signatures in the world of Parisian bijoux: Aurélie Bidermann has traveled extensively in South America and India. But it was her studies in art history in New York and Paris that prompted the designer to work first as an art historian in the impressionist and contemporary art departments of Sotheby’s. But gemology studied in Antwerp, talismans and art nouveau pushed Aurélie Bidermann towards the world of jewelry. His first creations and her brand are from 2004.

An imaginative, informal style, defined as boho, was immediately liked by the Parisians. In 2010 Aurélie Bidermann began selling her bijoux online and in 2012 she opened her first shop on the Rive Gauche, in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, followed by another on the opposite bank of the Seine. They are bijoux that favor a cheerful creativity, made with a simple gold plating, with the use of materials such as bakelite. Among the celebrities who have worn her bijoux are Kate Moss, Lou Doillon, Sharon Stone and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers.

The new jewels of Caterina Murino




While acting on the stage of the Théâtre de la Madeleine in Paris, where the comedy Le Tourbillon was scheduled, Caterina Mourino did not stop taking care of her second profession: jewelry design. After making her debut in 2017 with a collection centered on coral (we talked about it here) her creative vein has expanded to other forms of jewelry. But without forgetting what was the starting point of her brand Caterina Murino Jewellery: the actress’s collections are always made in her native land, Sardinia.

Jewels, for example, often use the traditional filigree technique, with gold threads intertwined to form the design of necklaces, rings, bracelets or brooches. And next to the coral, the actress-designer has added the traditional ingredients of the jewelry menu: gold, diamonds, semi-precious stones. The Caterina Murino Jewelery brand also supported the Stand Up for African Mothers campaign, which aims to raise funds to train midwives in Africa.

The impossible chains by Lauren Rubinski




Variations on the theme of chains: Lauren Rubinski started designing jewelry under the Pristine brand a decade ago. But now the jewelry brand simply has her name. Parisian designer, Lauren Rubinski underlines the importance of wearability: jewelry must also be comfortable, a second skin. Kate Moss is among her fans. And to say that the designer designs large chains that, at first glance, seem quite demanding. But, in reality, they are light, because the rings are hollow inside them. The chains are made in Italy, they are in 14 karat gold.

She says that her jewels are inspired by the 1950s, by the slightly flashy ones worn by French and Italian women in those years, and also by the jewels from her grandmother’s collection in Cap d’Antibes, a very elite seaside town in the south of France. In any case, Lauren Rubinsk succeeded in reinventing the chain motif, stressing the design with dense links, of different sizes and juxtaposed on the same jewel. For now, he has overshadowed the piercings, spacers, ear tunnels and other punk accessories that had characterized her debut. But just for now, probably.

Reza’s legacy




Five years after the death of Alexandre Reza, the great Parisian jewelery house continues on the path traced by its founder. In fact, the company’s activities had been transferred to his son Olivier as early as 2008. But it is worth remembering this great jeweler, who had an adventurous and exciting life. And it has become a myth in the history of jewelry. Just remember that in 1997, when Diana was killed in a car accident in Paris, she wore a solitaire ring from Reza, which she had received a few hours earlier from her boyfriend Dodi al-Fayed.

Alexandre Reza, who died in 2016 at the age of 93, was born in 1922 in Moscow, into a family of Persian origins. The father was a jeweler too. The family, who fled the Russian Revolution, arrived in Paris after the Second World War. Alexandre Reza soon became famous in France for his ability to discover exceptional ancient gems from Colombia, India, Burma (Myanmar), Thailand and Sri Lanka. He founded his Maison in the 1950s and started trading gems: he supplied stones to brands such as Boucheron, Bulgari, Cartier, Chaumet, Harry Winston, Louis Gérard and Van Cleef & Arpels and later on making jewels for the great brands of Place Vendôme. Then, in 1981 he too founded his own Maison and opened his boutique in 1984. His specialty was high jewelery.

Alexandre Reza’s creations have become famous for their richness and originality of design, with large, but light, original, but not extravagant jewels. Unique, coveted and very expensive pieces, always on average above 100,000 dollars. In summer 2020, Christie’s sold a two-diamond blue and white Reza ring for $ 9.2 million.

Olivier Reza, who after having accompanied his father on his travels in search of gems had chosen a career as a banker, returned to lead the company. After a refurbishment phase, in June 2012 he reopened a salon on Place Vendôme and continues his father’s work with the aim of adding new exceptional pieces to the Alexandre Reza collection.

Winter vibes for Messika




Vibes, i.e. vibrations, the emotional state of a person or the atmosphere of a place that are perceived. And, in case any emotion is related to a jewel with diamonds, here is the D-Vibes collection by Messika. The Parisian Maison celebrates winter with this line of jewelry that combines gold with pavé diamonds, with the aim of arousing emotions. The jewels, also enhanced by the images taken by Isabelle Bonjean, include the classic tennis bracelet, but with a new, more modern interpretation. Emerald-cut diamonds and multi-row chains serve to create elegant jewelry.

I imagined this photoshoot as a dj set, mixing collections like music samples. Suddenly, the sounds began to resonate and bring out a new rhythm, as with these classics from the maison that are continuously renewed.

The D-Vibes collection, in fact, does not abandon the celebrated style of the brand, which combines a modern and refined design with a variety of diamonds that combine in shape and quantity in different combinations, as in the historic Move collection, which is now reinterpreted with new variations. Like Move Uno, for example, or Imperial Move. Winter also brings new additions to the Divine Enigma collection in white gold and, of course, diamonds.

The nature of Cédille Paris




Nature at the center of Cédille Paris collections, the Maison founded by Carmen Aoun ♦ ︎

Carmen Aoun, of Lebanese origin, moved to Paris. Since she was a child, she says she grew up with a love for precious stones and jewelry. Two aspects that she studied until he created his jewelry house, called Cédille Paris. In 2019 she participated for the second time in VicenzaOro, in the Design Room. For those unfamiliar with the French language, it is good to specify that cedille (cedilla) is the graphic sign that is sometimes added to the letter Ç and is pronounced like a soft letter S. And if you look closely at the cedilla it is like an accessory: it looks like a jewel, for example a pair of earrings.

Even the style of Cédille Paris is as fun as its name. But the inspiration has nothing to do with the alphabet. In fact, jewels have almost exclusively a natural subject, sometimes with a bit of humor. As in the case of jewels that represent a fish bone, with gold and fancy diamonds. There is, however, also a more committed line, which recalls the environment at risk for elephants. The Cédille collections are made with diamonds, precious stones and 18-carat gold in white, yellow and pink, as well as some semi-precious stones such as malachite.
