Rouvenat: From the 2nd Empire to the Circular Economy
February 15, 2023
Join The Glitterati for a conversation between Marie Berthelon, Co-founder and CEO of Rouvenat, and Kyle Roderick, journalist and expert on sustainable luxury to learn about the incredible journey of reviving the Parisian heritage brand Rouvenat.
Sandrine de Laage drew her inspiration from a collection of over 3000 period gouaches and revived, through her own drawings, an inherited aestheticism, enriched by the jewellery techniques of the 21st century.
Circularity is at the heart of the social and environmental challenge that the jewelry Maison has set for itself. The question is simple: how not to betray the soul of a high jewellery Maison while considering the ecological reality?
