beauty means nothing.
At the heart of Place Vendôme, Courbet offers an ethical and ecological alternative to traditional jewellery.
Our diamonds are laboratory-grown, our gold is recycled.
Create and preserve the magic of the universe, such is the beauty of our mission.
Courbet, named after the painter who dreamt of a new Place Vendôme.
Courbet, the unconventional and disruptive artist who shocked France with his painting L’Origine du Monde, expressed the wish to tear down the column from the Place Vendôme and move it to the Invalides during the Paris Commune. In its place he imagined a monument to the glory of peace, a monument that would open onto the rue de la Paix, or the road of peace.
There is nothing more wonderful
Than a gemstone,
Nothing more precious
Than the Universe
We are gemstone experts,
We are respectful of our planet.
Today we are making an engagement.
Born of advanced technological magic
at the forefront of science,
Our laboratory-grown diamonds
Emerge from the same forces
As those from the depths of the Earth
As true diamonds,
Their gemological characteristics,
Carat, clarity, quality, color, and shape,
Are remarkably consistent
At the heart of the Place Vendôme
We are reinventing the fine art of jewellery
While holding on to the traditions
Of elegance and excellence
Jeweller with Values
This new diamond : an alternative
Our diamonds, along with all the other gemstones used by Courbet, are laboratory-grown in conditions that recreate the same forces as those from the depths of the Earth. Born of the highest technological magic and the mysteries of science, our diamonds are just as precious as our values.
Gold, again and again
Courbet only uses 100% traceable recycled 18 carat gold. An informed choice when you consider the pollution created by the extraction of gold from the natural world.
