Delphine hand carves chic jewelry that is sculptural and modern and her pieces are both timeless and edgy. She aims to strike the delicate balance between feminine and masculine while retaining a certain heft and substance, striving for bold simplicity. She wants her jewelry to be an indulgence you wear everyday and becomes part of your life story.
She uses fine metals, working primarily with 18k gold and sterling silver, reclaimed whenever possible. Her collection is designed and produced in NYC, satisfying a craving for new, mindful luxury.
Born and raised in the south of France, Delphine has made New York City her home for the last decade. As a result, her jewelry exudes both the warmth and playfulness of the beaches of her childhood and the modern architecture and energy of the city. An artisan at her core, she translates the many facets of her life into handcrafted and modern collections reflective of her strong and minimalist design aesthetics, and favors a simplicity and purity of line and volumes inspired by both the beauty of the organic world and shapes of urban architecture.
While her design influences are diverse, they merge easily into one shared sensibility, enabling the pieces across collections to be worn together
Delphine has always found solace in the arts. An avid and classically trained dancer, she also has a natural affinity with numbers that first led her to Business School. While immersed in a career in corporate finance for creative industries, she decided to give in to her desire for a new creative outlet and enrolled in jewelry making classes in Manhattan.
She first trained in metalsmithing, enameling, and chain making but she really found her medium once she started learning wax carving as it better suited her love of volumes and sculptural shapes. That was 10 years ago and she has not stopped hand-sculpting jewelry since.
In the summer of 2011, she finally trusted herself to fully follow her passion and launched her eponymous fine jewelry collection. Dance is still a big part of her creative process as its physicality is a very good complement to the needed stillness of sitting at her bench to create jewelry.
