La Vie Parisienne

French-Inspired Jewelry from California

New Collection Just Arrived! 

Catherine Popesco, creator and owner of La Vie Parisienne, is a Paris native. Catherine uses the invaluable treasures of French artistic heritage and style to create an exquisite collection of handmade jewelry.

Each piece is rendered from the original molds, painstakingly detailed by hand following traditional artisanal methods. Most pieces are made of "old silver" or "14 carat gold," a unique French process of layering silver or gold over copper to bring out relief and detail. All crystals are handset and the enameling is done with tiny brushes until each piece exhibits its unique quality and reflects the art and culture of the past while becoming a treasure in the present.

Originating in old Parisian workshops established over 200 years ago, the elegant designs are rendered from original molds and stampings created by the artists of the celebrated Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods.
