Joyful jewelry by Van Den Abeele

Delphine Crech'Riou was inspired to launch her jewelry brand not only by her husband's surname, but also by that of her daughters. I wanted to dedicate my madness to them through pieces that would be handed down from generation to generation," she explains. And jewelry brings to life the craftsmanship that has been so dear to me since I started out." In fact, Delphine Crech'Riou, in partnership with Jenny Collinet, is also behind the Hipanema and Wild brands.

With Van Den Abeele, it's time for a more upmarket universe where good humor still infuses. Gold work and the clarity of precious stones, combined with my colorful imagination in this very classical environment, exalt me at every moment," she continues. I love breaking codes and contrasts, being free, not following but setting the tone, all in color of course." To discover, precious talisman necklaces combining colored stones and cabochons in 14-carat gold with precious stones and set with diamonds, lucky charm pendants in multicolored stones, diamonds and 18-carat gold (fish, eye, feather), gri-gri bracelets in braided cotton thread, decorated with 925 silver motifs and set with a multitude of diamonds or semi-precious stones, as well as rings and earrings vibrant with color. A true visual voyage.

Symbolic jewellery from Little Ones

Following the birth of her daughter, Amélie Brunswick decided to create the jewelry of her dreams.

She chose six baguette-cut diamonds in the shape of a girl, and set them in gold. Thus was born Little Ones!

Since then, the range has expanded to include amulets for girls and boys, numbers and hearts. "A Little Ones amulet is a discreet celebration of maternal love. A precious gift for mothers, this gold and diamond jewel is handed down from generation to generation. A symbol of eternal love", she confides.

The diamonds are selected by Amélie, a gemmologist specializing in responsible jewelry, to ensure control of the supply chain and guarantee that the diamonds come from conflict-free sources.

Abïs: a delicate style

The uniqueness and symbolism of antique jewelry have always fascinated Anaïs Bretillon. Setting off to discover India, she found it a great source of inspiration. On her return, she designed her first collection and founded Abïs in 2014. She then chose to divide her life between Paris and Jaïpur.

Touched by traditional Indian art, she collaborates on site with artisans with unique know-how and ancestral techniques, particularly in cutting stones and setting Polki diamonds. The designer works lightly and delicately with fine gold, combining the natural brilliance of semi-precious stones with the magic of diamonds, like a treasure found.

The chic, graphic style of Lopé

When two friends, Lori and Pelin, decided to team up to launch their own brand, it was only natural that they should combine the first two letters of their first names to create the name of their label. Lopé was launched in 2010, with a focus on style.

The collections feature 14-carat gold, diamonds in a variety of colors and unique gemstones. The spirit is graphic and chic.

All jewelry is made in Lopé's workshop in Istanbul. Their brand is now distributed in numerous stores in Turkey, Dubai, Miami, Vienna, Porto and Paris.

Timeless accessories from CUF

Passionate about analog watches, jewelry and fashion, Ruth Kortleven came up with CUF. As head of the La Vie en Rose boutique in Knokke-Heist, Belgium, it's only natural that the leather watches, bags and pouches she designs should find their way into her selection.

It all began with the Original cuff watch.  "Both a watch and a piece of jewelry, it strikes the perfect balance between boldness and elegance, and fits loosely around the wrist," confides Ruth. Today, a number of sleek or more elaborate models stand side by side, crafted in silver or brass without a finishing coat to better patina over time. "In this way, each CUF object becomes truly yours," she emphasizes.

As for the leather bags and clutches enhanced by an aluminum charm (for lightness), they aim for elegance.

Fotini Psarouli's little talismans

Designer and trainer, Fotini Psarouli has been teaching in the jewelry world for several years. She experiments with different metals and handcrafts even the most complicated designs. She obeys no rules and follows no models.

Her true passion is gold, which she works with great skill, embellishing her creations with fine and precious stones. In fact, her world is made up of delicacy and small signs of good fortune. Jewelry that can be worn and chosen like a gri-gri.

Unique pieces by Iradj Moini

Originally from Iran, the designer began a new life in New York, where he launched his jewelry brand in 1989. From the outset, his talent attracted Oscar de la Renta, with whom he collaborated for 10 years. His name quickly made a name for itself in the world of luxury jewelry, to such an extent that his pieces were exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York as part of the Iris Apfel collection, as well as in the Trop exhibition with Barbara Berger at the Louvre in Paris.

Iradj Moini has a prestigious and loyal clientele, which enables him to be referenced in the world's finest retail outlets, such as Bergdorf Goodman.

The collections are inspired by nature and art. Highly colorful, each piece is hand-set with semi-precious stones (aventurine, tourmaline, tiger's eye...) and sometimes with handcrafted vintage Czechoslovakian crystals on a brass construction plated with 18-carat gold or platinum.
