A Diamond Heritage

A Family Affair

Messika was born in Paris in 2005 and is run by Valérie Messika, daughter of the famous diamond merchant André Messika. Core values have been passed down from father to daughter: to enhance the diamond, to push the boundaries and to strive continuously for excellence.

A Diamond Heritage

A prominent figure on the diamond trading scene since he started out in 1972, André Messika brought his daughter up on dreams dusted with jewels, punctuated with trips around the world to source extraordinary stones.

Surrounded by legendary gems from a young age, Valérie Messika moved away from diamond trading to concentrate on her passion for design and guided by a love for precious stones, she has blazed a glittering trail in the very closed world of fine jewelry. Valérie Messika's philosophy is to imagine, dream and create. Her strengths lie in her fertile imagination, keen eye for detail and the ability to challenge herself every day.

Carefully graded for size, color and purity, each stone is an immediate stimulus for a new detail, a curve, or a movement. Father and daughter represent two facets of a single passion for the eternal stone. And one day, Valérie Messika may well overtake the master, as the Messika name shines on, in the jewelry firmament.
