Made in France
Since the creation of LA BRUNE & LA BLONDE in 2011, we are proud to sell jewellery entirely made in France, from its design to its production, including our primers and cases. For LA BRUNE & LA BLONDE, it has always been an obvious choice, motivated by three reasons: 1. our desire to behave as a "responsible" player in our activity sector, choosing to manufacture locally with short circuits, 2. to bring to life the know-how and talent of French jewellery craftsmen, recognised (as in many other luxury goods professions) throughout the world, 3. rely on the capacity for innovation and reactivity of qualified workshops to be as close as possible to our customers' expectations within a limited time. Since 2011, our commitment to produce "MADE IN FRANCE" is unfailing. Today, more than ever, it is up to us to support French manufacturing and employment in France, to maintain our precious and historical know-how. These craftsmen work with talent: working with gold requires precision, attention and rigour at all times. This know-how is reflected in each of our pieces.
CONFETTI is the first collection of colored stones launched by LA BRUNE & LA BLONDE. True to the DNA of the house, it showcases stones in an unprecedented way.
Véronique Tournet, "la Brune", an iconoclast with class. Born in Brive la Gaillarde in Corrèze, Véronique graduated from SKEMA Business School (formerly CERAM) in the city of Nice. Once she got her degree, she went to the US to work for luxury brands before returning to Paris. There, she joined the Pilot Pen group, in charge of developing the sublime Japanese lacquered NAMIKI fountain pens. The six years she spent working for this brand developed her taste for elegant and refined simplicity and the quest for perfection. Which quest naturally lead her to get a Master Degree in Luxury and work for two of the blue chip Place Vendome Jewelers, namely Mauboussin and Boucheron. In 2011 she, “la Brune" created her own brand "LA BRUNE & BLONDE" together with her associate of the times, "la Blonde". They boldly decided to free diamonds from any kind of setting and created the pierced diamond. And thus, the NUDE DIAMOND concept. It has been an awesome nine years of success, creativity, passion, adventure. And you haven't seen nothing yet. Indeed, the best is yet to come. Stay tuned!
