A passion for the finest quality gemstones is at the core of House of Geneva's identity.
The city of Geneva boasts a rich history in jewellery and watchmaking, dating back to the 18th century. Known as 'La Fabrique', the creations from Geneva's master craftsmen were highly coveted by royalty from all across Europe. Proud of their city's traditions, and taking inspiration from this prestigious history, House of Geneva are looking to continue this legacy of being some of the finest jewellery makers in the world. Every single piece is handmade by local master craftsmen in Geneva itself, with the finest designers and goldsmiths on hand to create the jewellery of your dreams.

The stunning 'Blue Isabellae' broach is a wonderful representation of the artistry House of Geneva are capable of. This Papillon Vitrail inspired piece incorporates an impressive 20 carat cabochon sapphire as it's focal point. A beautifully graduated royal blue glass surrounds the sapphire, with the additional fine detail of rose-cut diamonds lining the wings and scattered into the glass making this piece stand out. Reminiscent of stained glass, the enamelling method used here is a traditional and highly technical process, which is perfectly executed by some of Geneva's finest craftsmen who have obtained this specialist know-how of Genevan jewellery heritage. This piece is truly the masterpiece of House of Geneva.

The city's artisanal history is not only reflected in House of Geneva's craftsmanship, but also in their jewellery designs. Many of the House's collections are inspired by Geneva’s famous landmarks, such as the beautiful maze of Geneva's Old Town, the stunning Jet d’Eau water fountain, and the breathtaking L'horloge Fleurie.
The House has a strong ethical policy too! Only incorporating responsibly-sourced diamonds and ethical gold into their jewellery makes them a leading brand in the industry with their responsible mission. Not only that, but one of their collections – the ‘Ensemble’ collection – donates it’s revenue to a variety of charities. These two factors – ethical sourcing, and charitable contributions – represent a core aspect of House of Geneva’s philosophy of delivering ‘Luxury that makes sense’.
