M. Gérard Louis Gérard founded M. Gérard in 1968 Paris. Before launching his own boutique, he has worked for Van Cleef & Arpels for years where he met André Vassort, a highly recognised manufacturer of extraordinary French jewellery in the mid-20th century. Gérard strived to create “the most beautiful jewels in the world” and the desire was perfectly expressed through design pieces which sprinkled with diamonds and coloured gems. For more than two decades, Vassort, who set up his workshop in 1955 and was well-known for his remarkable craftsmanship and jewels created for Van Cleef & Arpels, Boucheron and Mauboussin, would produce some spectacular jewels for M. Gérard whose pieces are often noted for its superb manufacture and therefore attracted clients from Europe as well as Far and Middle East.
