La Maison Messika
Driven by a desire to create diamond fashion jewelry of unwavering beauty, Valérie Messika created her own jewelry Hou in 2005. In her work, she reinvents the richly symbolic and meaningful stone into a desirable and disruptive object that lends self-confidence to anyone who wears it. Valérie Messika brings a liberating breath of fresh air to the jewelry industry. In her hands, the diamond comes alive: it moves, it dances, it has fun and most importantly, it is never boring.
Valérie Messika uses her perspective as a woman in her designing. In her opinion, there is no better backdrop than the shape of a woman. She sees her jewelry as a way to give women an extra sparkle to make them feel more beautiful, more confident.
Free the diamond
“Free the diamond” is Valérie Messika’s mantra. In her vision, the diamond should be a living companion to the wearer. Unlike traditional jewelry, in her pieces the diamond moves, twists, plays and lives. Liberty of movement is key, but so too are liberty of style and technique.
Three diamonds, one golden cage, 360 possibilities... Move is the creation that gave the House of Messika its signature style andthat heralded its success. The three mobile diamonds quickly became an “it-jewel”, as easy to wear in the day as by night, at work as with a cocktail dress
