    Poiray: Founded in 1972 by François Herail and Michel Hermelin, the House of Poiray was one of the last watchmaking and jewelry houses to join the exclusive and closed circle of the Place Vendôme in Paris. With a passion for craftsmanship, Poiray has built a reputation for originality and maintaining high jewelry traditions. Each piece of jewelry is designed with a feminine aesthetic in mind, resulting in pure form, perfect volume and soft curves.
