French Creative Corner at VicenzaOro

September 2024 edition

French jewellery-making excellence draws on prestigious expertise, renowned designers and ever-flowing creative inspiration. France owes its world-leading reputation in luxury and creativity to its expertise and a past rooted in the Place Vendôme’s high-profile Maisons.
As time goes by, the standards and trends inherent to different art forms ebb and flow — and the art of French jewellery-making is no different. A new generation of creative brands is dawning across this exclusive landscape, powered by a drive to showcase their work beyond France’s borders.
We aim to continue platforming this creativity by bringing a selection of emerging, creative French brands to a dedicated space at the VicenzaOro trade show in 2024.

Join us at Stand 169-171 – Hall 1 from 6 to 10 September 2024!

French Creative Corner

Precious adaptations of animism and its belief that everything has a soul; Animisma brings life to subtle modern symbols and refined variations. Balancing colour shades and the brightness of stones, each Animisma jewel exudes versatility. Designed to capture the imagination, each piece conveys a different meaning for each of us, like a delicate whisper.

BANGLE UP

Bangle-Up

Bangle-Up is the story of a bracelet. A jewel with the original “bangle” shape, but “upgraded” from the outset with singular prints. Over the years, this evolutionary bracelet has been constantly renewed and progressively adapted into complementary bands, cuffs, rings, necklaces and earrings. Sober yet colourful, refined yet accessible. Contemporary and timeless, these pieces are joyfully modular and accumulative. They are inspired by a trend towards the diversification of apparel known as “upwear”.
Beautifully crafted jewellery enhanced with fine gold, Bangle-Up creations are the result of a revisited craft process of lacquer and enamel working. The 3D models are designed and created in a Paris workshop, then crafted by a specialist partner in Asia. Elaborate know-how that remains inextricably linked to working by hand. Our jewellery is crafted in fine gold-plated brass or zamak and PVD steel adorned with enamel or lacquer.

Ikoba

Ikoba enchants lovers of male jewellery through unique creations available in boutiques in France and worldwide. Each piece draws its inspiration from travels and cultures spanning the entire world, offering a wide variety of patterns and natural materials.

In the world of Ikoba, each jewel tells a story of travels and encounters.

MILLE ET UNE PERLES

Mille Et Une Perles

A brand with values and symbols…
Mille et Une Perles, a cultured pearl specialist that supplies a large number of jewellery manufacturers, has conceived a passion for the history of those legendary Japanese female pearl divers known as the “Ama”.
These mysterious pearl fisherwomen from Japan are renowned for their courage and centuries-old proven fishing technique.
In honour of these brave women, Mille et Une Perles has created a gold and cultured pearl collection named “Hanashinju Pearls”. The new collection features cultured pearls fashioned by the deft hands of Japanese master diamond cutter Kazuo Komatsu.

Mille et Une Perles also offers unmounted faceted pearls.
