Unique pieces, gems, esotericism in the jewels of the Swiss brand Pierre d’Alexis ♦ ︎
The love for gems is manifested in many different ways. Sometimes, even surprisingly, for example in the École de la Vallée de Joux. In this corner of Switzerland, in the Jura valley, canton of Vaud, in 1994 he specialized in fine jewelry and gemology Grégoire Maret. Craftsman and jeweler, Maret has created Pierre d’Alexis, a small boutique that produces unique pieces with a style far from any tradition, between minimal and eclectic, small single works.
Maret, in fact, loves art jewelry, commissioned pieces or an expression of his free creativity, which he creates himself. There is also a good dose of symbolism and more or less explicit references to the ancient civilizations of the past, and to tribal, Egyptian and Viking art. And, finally, it went even further back in time to the cultural rediscovery of Celtic art, which inspired the first pieces of its collection of unique and numbered jewels. The Cosmic Flower ring, for example, represents plant dynamics and underlying esotericism. But you might like it even if you consider it simply in the shape of a star. Lavinia Andorno
