It is a delicate and dynamic world. A sparkling world of gemstones, skill and French know-how. The house of Atelier Mariusse & Bonnet fashions fine haute jewelry and the latest collection is filled with light and fittingly entitled Equinoxe or Equinox in English, a moment in the year when the length of the day and the night are equal, the dawning of springtime, when the snow melts into the first flowers of spring. With spring a symbol of renewal, hope and joy, the house’s two founders sought to create outstanding jewels blending the spirit of spring with the rays of the sun. Rubies are the star of the show, rubies reflected in the light of diamonds. The entire collection has been made in 18 carat pink gold and proffers a universe that is dedicated to the magic of nature. All stages of the manufacturing process are carried out in France.
The house was founded by Christophe Mariusse and Philip Bonnet who have been jewelers for more than 30 years. The house has the prestigious label Joaillerie de France (Jewelry of France) and obtained RJC certification — the RJC aims to advance responsible ethical, social and environmental practices — in 2016. The house of Atelier Mariusse & Bonnet is located in the heart of the Rhône Valley in Valence in the scenic Drôme region.
