If you’re anything like us, then you’re constantly trying to nail down a decidedly French-girl aesthetic (same, girl, same). We know we weren’t the only ones who swooped in on last season’s coin pendant necklace trend that had us channeling our inner Parisian. Now we’re turning our attention to Atelier Paulin, the bespoke jewelry brand to watch and definitely shop this fall. The up-and-coming Parisian label, founded by Anne-Sophie Baillet and Matthias Lavaux in 2014, boasts a collection of elegant twisted metal wire jewelry that’s just as unique as the wearer (Halle Berry included — yup, we’re fangirling too). The longtime friends-turned-business partners came together through a “common desire to express feeling through message jewelry.” And so, Atelier Paulin was born.

Atelier Paulin Founders

Not only is each creation handcrafted with love and artistry, but it’s the personalization that makes these poetic pieces so special. Modeled after a personal mantra, a favorite quote, a word, or a name, there’s a little something for everyone. Beyond the actual message, the made-to-order jewelry is available in argentium, 9K and 14K gold-filled wire, as well as in a range of 18K gold options.

Atelier Paulin Artisan

While the Paris atelier is home base, the passion-driven duo recently opened a NYC studio. Utilizing an ancestral hand-shaping technique, transmission is at the brand’s core essence. All of Atelier Paulin’s artisans undergo extensive training to ensure that each finished product is crafted to perfection — right down to a personalized card about the artisan who created your one-of-a-kind piece.

One of Atelier Paulin’s keepsake pieces *could* be the next Carrie Bradshaw nameplate necklace or the quintessential gift for the mom/sister/BFF who seemingly already has everything. Scroll through for our top picks — and trust us, there’s plenty of je ne sais quoi to be had.


1. Amour Bracelet ($170-$250): Why not gift the universal language of love this holiday season? The Amour bracelet, available in both gold and silver, embodies French simplicity to a T. For a look of pure elegance, style it alongside your Breton stripes.

2. Earcuff Rock ($125-$170): Let the good times roll with one of Atelier Paulin’s precious metal wire ear cuffs. Serious boss babes need not settle for anything less than the tough girl-approved Rock earring, which can be ordered for either your left or right lobe.
