Paris, France —It is one of the most confidential of high jewelry houses. Sandra Bérété founded her eponymous house of high jewelry in Paris over ten years ago dedicated to the creation of unique one of a kind pieces resembling works of art. These are jewels rooted in the haute joaillerie traditions of the Place Vendôme and draw their inspiration from the designer’s love of Art Deco, Hollywood glamour and contemporary art. The result: true works of art fashioned in gold, platinum, diamonds and precious gemstones. All of her designs are made to order and fashioned in the most prestigious of the Parisian high jewelry workshops. Each jewel is unique. The influence of art is evident in the pieces which are at times graphic, geometric, fairy-tale like. She also conceives high jewelry watches and glasses as well as collections dedicated to investment diamonds.

Sandra Bérété studied at the Gemological Insitute of Paris and was influenced by the avant-garde artist and great jewelry creator Henri Gargat who encouraged her in her work. She also draws her inspiration from her roots: her mother is West Indian and her father from West African and on her father’s side she is a direct descendant of the imperial family of Wagadou Ghana. Today she works directly with village communities in West Africa that produce gold and diamonds and she collaborates with the Geneva-based Globe Ethics, a network of teachers and institutions that aims to embed ethics in higher education.
