Messika was born in Paris in 2005 and is run by Valérie Messika, daughter of the famous diamond merchant André Messika. Core values have been passed down from father to daughter: to enhance the diamond, to push the boundaries and to strive continuously for excellence.
A prominent figure on the diamond trading scene since he started out in 1972, André Messika brought his daughter up on dreams dusted with jewels.
His fascination with the emotional power of gemstones has transformed Mesika into a global hallmark of innovation, creativity and craftsmanship.
Surrounded by legendary gems from a young age, Valérie Messika moved away from diamond trading to concentrate on her passion for design. From that point on, father and daughter represent two facets of a single passion for the eternal stone.
Valérie Messika's philosophy is to imagine, dream and create. Her strengths lie in her fertile inspiration, keen eye for detail and the ability to challenge herself every day.
Atelier Messika is unique, a space bathed in soft natural light. Jewelers, setters, polishers and virtuoso artisans apply their talent and experience to create exceptional pieces. Understated elegance, refinement, grace and a taste for innovation, renewal and asymmetrical design… Together, these define the Maison's Art of creation. Maison Messika is about imagining, dreaming and creating, to give shape to a unique kind of jewelry. New and surprising shapes are constantly studied and re-imagined, to enhance female beauty and blend the timeless with the contemporary.
