Trained in technical drawing and in the jeweler’s gouaché at the Haute Ecole de Joaillerie in Paris rue du Louvre, I created MAÏTIA, a Parisian jewelry brand.
An eco-responsible brand
The metals used are exclusively recycled or fair mined.
The parts are made of recycled solid gold or ethical and fair trade gold with the RJC (Responsible Jewellery Council) label, whose members undertake to comply with the RJC code of practice for diamonds, gold and platinum. This code covers human rights, labor, the environment, mining practices and product information. The RJC is a member of ISEAL, the world association of sustainability standards. (www.responsiblejewellery.com/).
The stones are carefully selected by talented gemologists, concerned about ethics, who bring their know-how by offering quality gems whose origin respects man and nature.
The diamonds are SCPK certified (Kimberley Process Certification System). The objective of the Kimberley Process is to prevent “conflict diamonds” from entering the international market. According to the definition adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, “conflict diamonds” are “rough diamonds used by rebel movements to finance their military activities, in particular attempts to undermine or overthrow legitimate governments ».(www.kimberleyprocess.com).
The mother-of-pearls used come from pearl farms. Shellfish are raised to be eaten or to produce pearls. They are then recycled for their mother-of-pearl. Production and trade are controlled by the authorities of the countries of origin.
An art craft
The Jewellery is made in France, in workshops that are world-renowned for their exceptional craft in the purest Jewellery tradition.
The use of solid gold, which is essential for all handcrafted products, gives them quality and durability.
We take special care in the production of our collections, which meet the highest standards of the profession.
