Excellence for creation

Valerie Messika sees the Atelier as a creative space where ideas take shape

The lavish world of high jewelry is supported by valuable craftsmanship. The first stage in the development of a place of fine jewellery requires around a hundred sketches, before the design is approved for modeling. A gouache is then created by expert with a keen eye and a steady hand, as a bridge between the designer and the jeweller. The transition from the creative idea to reality is a path that is rarely clear in advance.

Having produced a variety of models, the jeweler constructs the various elements which will form the structure of the bespoke jewel. Then, the jeweller meticulously assembles the pieces in order – the drawing finally comes to life, the emotional curves take form and harmonious design is revealed. The jeweller finishes the assembly with a welding torch. The structure will then house the various stones, giving life to a work of perfect proportions. The delicate operation of polishing follows. The skilful hands of the polisher will spend more than 50 hours on a custom finish, giving the desired visual effect.
