During my visit to Paris, I was treated to another Paris Shopping Tour excursion with the lovely Diane. She always has the best addresses for uniquely French brands and designers!
A Lovely Parisian Jewelry Boutique…
One of the shops she introduced me to this time was WHITE biRD, a small but exquisitely stocked jewelry boutique. Stéphanie Roger, the proprietor, has an extensive background in jewelry design and has worked with many major houses. But she wanted to create a more small, personal space featuring pieces from independent designers, and her shop is an intimate boutique with unique items.
I was swooning over just about everything in the shop. Much of it was over my budget, but then this unique ring caught my eye. It’s from Charlotte Chesnais, a French designer who worked with Nicholas Ghesqueière at Balenciaga for nine years before launching her own line. Her pieces are modern, sculptural, and abstract, yet quite comfortable to wear. (I tried on a few in the shop 😉 though this ring was the only one that came home with me.) The designs often have an element that seems to be defying gravity, which I find intriguing.
