Esther Assouline, 10 years in exploration : 31 May - 13 July 2018

Esther Assouline has a long history of collecting objects from the ancient world: fibulae, pearls and ornaments that were acquired in auction rooms. “The call of my Mediterranean origins”, she says. For a long time, she mused over her acquisitions, studying them from all angles and imagining a place for them in her jewelry. 

And then, suddenly, she understood how to integrate the talismans and pearls into her ornaments: they would be mounted intact, as a goldsmith of the Ptolemaic era would have done, but with her vision and her sensitivity. 

The rest of the journey followed naturally. She chose pieces that were already drilled and began to integrate them into gold chains, creating patterns of gold and ornaments for which she alone has the secret.

Weightlessness : 21 March - 19 May 2018

A diamond caught up in a cloud, an imposing, yet light chain, a buoy-shaped pendant that would sink, some jewels seem helium-charged, while others are weighty. Jewellers are blurring the tracks ...

Be delightfully surprised to discover that light is heavy and heavy is light, and to question the concept of “precious”…

Titanesque : 5 October - 23 November 2017

For the 2nd edition of the “Parcours Bijoux” in Paris, I wanted to bring together new designers from all over the world and our permanent designers. I am delighted to introduce you to a variety of creations of 12 designers using titanium : insolent colour combinations, extravagant jewelry, some light as feathers, others very weighty, organic pieces and others industrial in appearance... 

Titanium was forged, melted, oxidized, hammered, stretched, slashed, anodized or paved with diamonds and even welded. In any case, it has submitted to the demands, audacity and perseverance of jewellers whom, I believe, deserve our admiration. 

Designers : Marianne Anselin, Florence Croisier, Laurent Diot, Nathalie Dmitrovic, Karen Gay, Roland Kawczynski, José Marin, Meghan O’Rourke, Agathe Saint Girons, Fabrice Schaefer, Vanessa Williams, Claire Wolfstirn

Agathe Saint Girons, Chained/Unchained : 1- 30 June 2017

In keeping with the rhythm imposed by the creation of a collection "Petit H" for the prestigious HERMÈS, the exhibition of one of a  SPIRALUS  ring at the Museum of Modern Art for "MEDUSA, Bijoux et Tabous", the creation of a vase in homage to the 25th anniversary of the "vase d'Avril" by the designers Tsé-Tsé Associées, Agathe Saint Girons presents now a series of jewels,  made with her fetish materials: Glass, Leather, Metal and Stone(s) .

In her exhibition «Chained, Unchained», Agathe Saint Girons goes through large-format chain-necklaces to freely interpreted rings, pendants or bracelets. The concept of "light chains" having a particular meaning and impact for the artist, these jewels testify to her vital force which transforms these chains into an ode to life. The circle, essential form, is omnipresent but is made bubble... water, air, sound...


Beauty in Beasts : 18 November 2016 - 18 February 2017

The jewelry on show questions or celebrates the animal figure, using bones or fur or a fur-like perception, sometimes with a touch of humour.

Jewelry by : Marianne Anselin, Esther Assouline, Ambroise Degenève, Karen Gay, Patricia Lemaire, John Moore, Maxime Rips, Rie Taniguchi, Thomas V.

Marianne Anselin, Touching Iron : 25 May - 23 July 2016

Iron, rusted steel with a patina, cast iron, gold and silver are her favourites. Together with diamonds, gemstones, wood or smooth frosty glass found on the shore, they become a hand-made powerful and poetic piece of jewelry. From 25th May, Marianne Anselin’s new rings, long necklaces and large cuffs will be exhibited at the gallery, set in a personal scenography...

The jeweller named this exhibition “borrowed impressions”. In French, this expression encompasses both the method to create and the shape of many of her pieces of jewelry…

Forever! :  24 March - 14 May 2016

Getting married, or married again, or moving in together… a wedding band still remains the all-time, universal token of love, offering a ring is the gesture that has weathered all the changes in the way couples meet and live.
