La Vie Parisienne

La Vie Parisienne was started in 1979 by Catherine Popesco She started designing jewelry in LA and then moved to a workshop in the beautiful French countryside. Currently, her studio is near the beaches of Santa Monica. La Vie Parisienne is a 

timeless collection of beautiful jewelry that has brought century old treasures through history to create today’s heirlooms. Each design is made with original antique pieces that come from many sources in Europe. All of La Vie Parisienne creations are handmade and hand set using Swarovski crystals. The jewelry is constructed of either 14K gold plating or “old silver”, a unique French process of laying sterling silver or 14K gold over a copper or brass base. Following the traditional French artisan techniques, each piece exhibits the delicate details of their historic designs.
