Courbet introduces the first diamond ever Made in France

This winter 2019, the jeweler of ecology, ethics and progress, Courbet, introduces jewels set with the first ever French diamonds. To celebrate this milestone, Courbet dedicates to them a limited edition collection with a typical Parisian design: Pont des Arts.

Ever since its creation, Maison Courbet has disrupted the jewelry industry by offering high-end jewelry made with lab-grown diamonds and recycled gold. This choice is anchored in today’s reality where ecology is of urgent priority.

Because France had never cultured diamonds before, Courbet has had, since start, to turn to international suppliers. Now, however, change has come.

Manuel Mallen and Marie-Ann Wachtmeister, founders of Courbet, have decided to establish a lasting relationship with Alix Gicquel, a scientist whose laboratory lies within the CNRS and who has dedicated her life to studying diamonds.

With this Made in France diamond, Courbet takes a quantum leap with its high jewelry, from the heart of traditions to the future of science, all of which in the service of sustainability.

Despite her hard work, Alix Gicquel, a scientist whose laboratory lies within the CNRS, has had to face the challenge set by the culture of a diamond. The creation of this gemstone preserves the mystery and the uncertainty of the result makes each piece a unique and limited creation.

The Pont des Arts collection was designed by Marie-Ann Wachtmeister.

It refers to the well-known Pont des Arts in Paris, where lovers have been attaching locks as a testimony of love for years.

The distinctive railings of the bridge can be found in the structure of the jewel. At the back of the padlock, an opening in the shape of an Eiffel Tower lets the light shine through to give the diamond an extra sparkle.

On each side of it, couples can have their initials engraved. An ode to France, to Paris and to love.

The C and the O, like a leitmotiv.

The first two letters of Courbet are a C and an O. Two letters that, combined, convey togetherness in words such as cohesion, cooperation, connection...

The lock of the Pont des Arts collection recreates the symbolic CO of Courbet that can also be found, in multiple forms, in nearly every jewelry collection of the Maison.
