About Tournaire - Jewel designer since 1973:
Like its creators Philippe and Mathieu, Tournaire is always on the lookout for innovation, for jewelry that has never been seen, never made. For 50 years, Maison Tournaire has stood out in the world of jewelery with a strong style, subtly using the art of “organized disorder”. This unique style is characterized by a great freedom of expression combined with all the audacity, always in search of the jewel endowed with a perfect balance. The creators do not forbid themselves anything, until the discovery of the right combination of shape, color... A freedom associated with a unique know-how combining the best of ancestral techniques such as lost wax casting, and the best of technologies the most modern like 3D design. More than 20 years ago.
Maison Tournaire is made up of a team of experts, with exceptional know-how and techniques, who invest themselves every day in the service of a common passion. From the first stroke of the pencil to the presentation of the jewel in the shop, everything is done in-house by the teams of the Tournaire workshop in Montbrison-Savigneux. Maison Tournaire has always been based on values that are inseparable from it. And it is on this base that Philippe and Mathieu Tournaire perpetuate precious know-how and a reputation for French tradition.
