THE ART OF HIGH JEWELLERY

AN ART AND A CRAFT

A craft as much as an art, High Jewellery is the meeting place between incredible levels of craftsmanship and the most exceptional of materials, and where creativity is boundless. From this union come true pieces of art, that will be worn, admired, and cherished for generations. In the small world of High Jewellery, the French tradition has always set itself apart for its obsessive attention to details, with creations that needed to be beautiful to watch from every angle, including what is hidden.

THE HIGH JEWELLERY ATELIER

When Brigitte Ermel opened her High Jewellery Atelier in Paris in 1992, she aspired to be a part of this tradition of excellence, and to contribute to the perpetuation of its heritage. Moreover, by having its own Atelier from the beginning and integrating all the crafts of jewellery-making, the designer has been able to ensure both a perfect execution at every step but also the faithful translation of her creative vision. The High Jewellery Atelier, located near Place Vendôme, brings together a team of 15 skilled craftsmen, including modellers, jewellers, setters, and polishers.

AN EYE FOR EXCEPTIONAL GEMS

This mastery of all the different crafts of jewellery-making allows Brigitte Ermel to truly reveal and honour the beauty of the gems that she carefully selects for her collections. With her sharp eye as a gemmologist and her bold nature, the designer is especially renowned for her ability to find rare, expressive, and colourful gems. These precious centre stones are akin to beating hearts, that bring life, fire, and soul to her jewels.
