Almost two centuries on, four industry insiders (including Marie Berthelon CEO and Sandrine de Laage, Artistic Director) are reviving Léon Rouvenat, who made his mark on jewelry during the Second Empire (cf “The mysterious disappearance of Rouvenat”). Based on two fundamental motifs drawn from the archives (the rosette and the tassel finished to a point), the positive values initiated by Léon Rouvenat are modernized. The twenty-first-century Rouvenat now uses only already extracted gold and precious stones. The emphasis is on digital technology and customization thanks to an exclusive, user-friendly configurator: in the e-shop, customers create their own jewelry by choosing their stone, chain, gold finish, etc. And at each step, you can preview the result. Rouvenat also integrates the blockchain to secure each piece of jewelry. See you from 15 November at “416” (rue Saint Honoré) – a venue with a large glass roof, reminiscent of Leon Rouvenat’s original jewelry factory.
