1. Elise Tsikis

Elise Tsikis

Elise draws inspiration from nature, a common thread in her work. From a mixed Greek and French heritage, Elise selects unusual materials like wool and magnesite to create golden yellow, rose, and white-gold jewelry. Customers love her Pensée oversized ring, with delicate petals that stretch across the fingers. Her designs can be found in her boutique as well as at select stores in Paris, including the Musée du Quai Branly gift shop.

2. Margi Darika

Margi Darika

Young jewelry designer Mélanie Desplat breathes new life and energy into her creations, drawing inspiration from her travels in Brazil. The result is an eclectic mix of jewelry — from bangles to bold earrings. Customers love her hypnotizing Léo earrings. In Paris, you can find her creations at the boutiques in Paris listed below.

3. and… paris

and paris

Yep, that's the brand name — and… paris. Born into a family of jewellers, Alizée Guinochet naturally has a passion for all things jewelry. Her belief is that jewelry should be worn every day and never taken off. Take your pick from her assortment of refined creations made with fine gold. Customers love her sand pink saphirs bracelet at €500. You can find her pieces throughout Paris in select boutiques.

4. Monsieur Paris

Monsieur Paris

The twist is there is no monsieur at this gem-sized jewelry store. Nadia Azoug's Art-Deco-inspired jewellery is made and sold at her tiny boutique on Rue Charlot in the Marais. Each piece is unique, with prices that won't break the bank. Customers love the Olympe bracelet — a set of Roman-inspired gold bangles set with a single diamond.

Her small workshop is practically on the street, where you can watch the craftswomen at work (everyone who works here is female). We love Nadia's journey from a sociology graduate to a job in publishing to deciding to open her own jewelry store after meeting a jeweller for the first time!

5. White Bird

White Bird

Stéphanie Roger learned her craft at big-name jewelry brands, then chose to set up her Marais boutique in an entirely different style. The simple space is laid out beneath white-painted beams, with wood and wicker furniture featuring her pick of designers' work from around the globe. The pieces range from around 80€ to 100,000€, with plenty of choices in between. Stéphanie has two boutiques in Paris.

6. Junco Paris

Junco Paris

Junco Yamada's tiny boutique/atelier is an Aladdin's cave of precious and semi-precious stones. Formerly a fashion designer, Yamada now creates special-edition jewelry using traditional and contemporary methods with whispers of her Asian heritage. Her jewelry is delicate, romantic and poetic. Born in Tokyo, she arrived in Paris in 1987 and began her jewelry collection, working with haute couture designers, including Christian Lacroix.

7. Marie-Helene de Taillac

Marie-Helene de Taillac

When she was a teenager, Marie-Hélène de Taillac draped her bed with coral-pink velvet and piled her nightstand tables with an assortment of crowns, gilded tiaras, bracelets, and sparkling stones. She read every book she could on the subject of great jewellers. A year before she opened her Paris boutique, she set off on a solo journey through Asia with the sole goal of sourcing gemstones and precious materials — silver from Bali, pearls from Japan, engraved gold from Thailand, rubies and sapphires from India.

Whether it's rings, earrings, fishnet wrist-gloves, or rainbow necklaces, Marie-Hélène de Taillac's creations are unique and memorable. Her aquamarine, amethyst, citrine, crystal, diamond, and garnet creations are sold in patinated leather jewelry cases engraved with your own initials. She now has locations in New York, Japan, and of course, Paris.

8. Naïla de Monbrison

Naila de Monbrison

Naïla de Monbrison loves metal — whether it's gold, copper, or stainless steel. As one of the most sought-after jewelry designers in Paris, she opened her unique jewelry/art gallery in 1987 with the goal of treating jewelry as art. With simplicity and beauty in mind, she has no respect for carats and will mix seashells with metal or gold with silver to create ornaments of true art and perfection.
