Julie Genet is a designer of contemporary jewelry in Cagnes sur Mer.

Her first steps as a jewelry designer

In the beginning, Julie Genet began by learning to observe gemstones in the family environment. Then we met at the Ecole de Gemmologie de Marseille where we graduated. Our friendship started right away. Indeed, I am amazed by the themes of his creative universe close to legends and mythology. Yes, as soon as we start talking about history, I fall into a wonderful space of time.

Voici ce qu’elle écrit dans son site sur les Sources d’inspiration « C’est toutefois un moyen-âge touché par la magie, où se mêlent les héros de la mythologie, des légendes, de la littérature et du cinéma. Un monde où les femmes sont fortes et les muses ont des supers-pouvoirs ».

Opening of the TRESOR Gallery in the Hauts de Cagnes

In 2016, she founded her brand Julie Genet Joaillerie in collaboration with Caroline her sister. Then, the success comes very rightly. Moreover I was able to follow the publication of photographs of stars on the steps of the Cannes Film Festival wearing a creation of Julie Genet. Then we can read the praising articles published regularly in the press specialized in contemporary jewelry.

Since 2019, the Galerie Trésor has opened its doors in front of the Château des Haut de Cagnes. It is therefore a perfect place for new French collections that will tour the world of jewelry.

The design

Far from the received ideas, Julie Genet brings in her creations a new dimension in the volume.

Moreover, she starts by choosing colored stones that have weight. The choice of the color of the stones requires a lot of time to find it. In addition, the quality of the cut and color are also important criteria for buying original gems. We have learned all these techniques little by little and with the help of certificates from specialized laboratories .

She dares to combine shapes and colors in her unique way to create beautiful pieces.

The precision of the details

To continue to clarify her artistic approach, I would say that the second important point is the precision of the details. She produces little but always pushing the details as far as possible. For example, it should be known that the rendering of the volume of a ring is extremely difficult to achieve. Therefore, I am in awe of such a visual result.

In conclusion, from a very personal point of view, this ring that you see in the photograph represents a very strong harmony. It marries the beauty of the 3 colors of Tanzanite with the volume of the ring. The jewel looks like a sculpture. Now you can see why I am so in awe of Julie's creations!
