For almost twenty years now, I have let my creativity and diamond expertise run free at the heart of the Maison. I like to break the codes of the diamond industry. I think of my creations as «fashion jewelery» with an exceptional know - how. I create pieces that are sensual like precious tattoos and that can be worn by all women. Each piece of jewelery brings the final touch of light, the unique note that will make the difference.
— Valérie Messika, Founder & Artistic Director
Maison Messika is about imagining, dreaming and creating, to give shape to a unique kind of jewellery.
At the heart of all the greeds, the necklace Toi & Moi challenging laws of gravity thanks to two wonderful cognac diamonds pear cuts, of more than 37 carats each. Delicately in suspension at the end of two threads of diamonds, they come to light next to the skin to sublimate the purity of these two exceptional stones.
Dressed in overalls embroidered with the name of the Maison, a number of artisans lean over the workbenches in the new fine jewelry atelier. This is where unique pieces are created by a draughtsman, a specialist in CAD (computer-aided design), a model maker, three jewellers, a setter and a polisher. An age-old craft where each piece is a work of art, the fruit of a chain of talent.
Valérie Messika has added her personal touch to this space, right down to the smallest detail, with a pure decor far removed from that of traditional ateliers. The patina gray benches pick up the colours of the busts on which the jewels sparkle the bouquets of fresh roses are reminiscent of the store on Rue Saint-Honoré. Truly feminine, this daring modern den reflects the image of the brand, known for its contemporary vision of jewelry.
Created by a woman for women, creations are a subtle balance between strength, elegance and determination.
