Paris Shopping: Jewelry by Delphine Pariente
Fri 2 Aug 2013
Shopping in Paris for personalized jewelry at an affordable price can be difficult, but we’ve found the perfect solution in the designs of Delphine Pariente. Her creations are about bringing movement and imagination to the world, and she opened a lovely workshop-boutique in the Marais in order to express herself freely.
Her gold- and silver-plated necklaces and bracelets are inspired by themes, messages, luck and stars. In her collection, you’ll find pieces with words like mon trésor, bonne étoile and toujours. You can also have a personal word or phrase engraved. Delphine wanders around Paris looking for vintage jewelry, using the parts to create unique vintage pieces. We love the vintage bracelet with Swarovski rhinestones, and the simple yet elegant quartz necklaces.
All pieces are custom made in Delphine’s workshop in Paris. The finishing touch? Her special logo on the beautiful packaging is typed with an antique typewriter!
