A REAL LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT AT THE ORIGIN OF THE PROJECT
It was in the Jura that François Deprez, our founder, discovered the fascinating
world of precious stones. A passion that would never leave him, as he later
decided to study coloured stones at the Gemmological Institute of America
His encounters sharpened his vision and made him discover the multiple facets of
this field. At the same time, one of the jewellers in his home town became his
mentor and passed on his knowledge and passion for coloured stones.
In April 2022, our team opens the doors of Nascendi, the first colourful and
committed House of Stones & Jewellery!
OUR MISSION: TO MAKE THE UNATTAINABLE ACCESSIBLE
To democratize custom-made jewellery.
Because made-to-measure jewellery can be an obstacle path, we make it accessible through a complete, fluid and above all transparent process.
To reveal the unknown stones and help you discover the world of jewellery.
We want to bring "forgotten" stones back into the spotlight. The ones you have never heard of and which, nevertheless, are sometimes even more special.
To offer a different kind of jewellery at your side. To move the lines.
We are committed to promote and develop environmentally and socially responsible sourcing practices for coloured stones.
COMMITTING TO A RESPONSIBLE SUPPLY CHAIN
In the coloured stone supply chain, there are (very) many intermediaries. The result? An opaque process, a limited traceability and an uneven distribution of value.
As a trader, we have the power to act to offer a more ethical alternative in environmental and social terms.
We are in the process of obtaining RJC (Responsible Jewerlery Concil) certification, which attests to our responsible sourcing policy. We are also working with the Alliance for Responsible Mining (ARM) to develop independent artisanal mining cooperatives to create a more sustainable sourcing model.
BEHIND EACH OF OUR PIECES, FRENCH JEWELLERY KNOW-HOW
Our talented lapidaries, designers and jewellery craftsmen are the true alchemists, they sublimate the material and magnify the raw material to reveal its beauty.
Combining know-how and reasoned manufacturing, our settings are imagined in Paris, handcrafted in our Angevin workshop and exclusively in recycled 750 thousandths
Convinced that the beauty of stones lies in their uniqueness, we only work with non-calibrated stones. For a unique jewel, like you.
QUALITY AT THE HEART OF OUR COMPANY
The stones we offer are checked by our expert gemologists to ensure conformity. Most of them are certified but if not, we do it for you.
Since your signature jewel will follow you for a long time, we offer you a lifetime guarantee!
