Only a few weeks left before the launch of the 2017 edition of Paris Design Week ! We are pleased to announce that LA Joaillerie by Mazlo will organize on this occasion an exceptional group show, in partnership with the Arketip association. Entitled “Sacrés Outils!”, this exhibition is particularly important to us. Indeed, it highlights the absolute necessity to rethink our relationship to objects and especially to manual tools. It also proves that preserving know-how is not incompatible with the use of technologies, provided that these advances do not affect the essential: creativity and human well-being. In these times of generalized burn-out, would happiness be “at the bench”? We would like to thank all our guests : Lisa & Scott Cylinder, Guillaume Delaperriere, Juanjo Garcia Martin, Xavier Moncluis, Jo Pond, Katja Prins, Quars d’una (Sandra Lluisa, Clara Niùbo , Carla Garcia Durlan, Maria Diez Serrat), Fabrizio Tridenti, Gabi Veit. Find all the relevant information about our guests by consulting their dedicated profile page on this site. And don’t forget to follow us on Instagram and Facebook for daily updates! Exhibition from 8 to 30 September 2017. Opening on September 7th, 7-9 pm.

And if you actually have, you probably noticed the lack of feature articles on the subject. An incredible lack when compared to the huge offer of red and rose gold jewels featured on websites, which introduce them brazenly as a genuine novelty. But let’s be clear here. These alloys are nothing but old (however valuable) recipes, which have become the new darlings of the luxury marketers who found there a new winning formula to make something new out of the old … Since the blog of LA Joaillerie highlights the red colour this month, I ‘d like to share with you a new article compiling the major characteristics of red gold and of its “baby pink” variation (see point # 6), just to debunk a few misconceptions and help you to understand the reasons behind this trend. In this article: IN A HURRY? FIND A RESUME OF THIS ARTICLE IN AN INFOGRAPHIC HERE #1. RED GOLD AND ROSE GOLD ARE NOT REALLY GOLD BECAUSE GENUINE GOLD IS […]
