Yves Gratas: classic and fashionable jewelry.

Yves Gratas: classic and fashionable jewelry.

Yves Gratas’ jewelry is made out of gold (18 carat), and precious or semi-precious stones such as diamonds, sapphires, amethysts, tourmaline or pearls. He is the only jewelry maker in Paris who uses the mise en couleur de l’or, a technique that consists of extracting the silver and copper from the surface of the gold metal, in order to reveal the true color of the gold. Another one of his trademarks is to mount some of the stones upside down in order to get a rougher and less symmetrical piece of jewelry. His costume jewelry is big in the fashion world, he has worked for Agnès B., François Girbaud and Thierry Mugler. Yves Gratas works from his workshop/boutique on rue Oberkampf and specializes in made-to-order jewelry. His jewelry is timeless, classic, elegant and yet very contemporary.
