The excellence of French jewelry


Concerned with continuing a tradition of quality right down to the frames that dress our diamonds, we have chosen to offer a service of handmade custom jewelry by French craftsmen selected for their quality know-how.

The setting is not a simple accessory, the purity of the lines and the finishing touches must equal that of the diamond. A good work of jewelry adapts to perfection the proportions of the jewel to those of the chosen diamond and the finger size. We offer you the best of the great classics of French jewelry.
