Our story

It all began with a friendship of 15 years and counting and a partnership that came together naturally, founded upon a common desire to express emotion through personalized jewelry and to develop a unique savoir-faire.
Two different worlds, two friends merging their unique skills to become one : Atelier Paulin
Our story
Anne-Sophie Baillet
A fashion design school, several couture houses, a career in event planning, a passion for fashion and jewelry, an eye for beauty and an idea.
Matthias Lavaux
After several years working as an entrepreneur in fashion and cinema, Matthias Lavaux quickly joined the adventure, bringing along his sensibility for design and a love for craftsmanship and rare gems.
Colette, Paulin, names for life.
Right after the birth of Anne-Sophie’s daughter Colette, the first bracelet was made with the help of a craftsman. The famous Parisian store Colette spotted the jewelry on social media, marking the beginning of a beautiful collaboration and a wonderful adventure.
The brand naturally came to life with the name Atelier Paulin
  • Atelier to highlight the French craftsmanship at the heart of our brand.
  • Paulin to honor Anne-Sophie’s father, also an entrepreneur.
Atelier Paulin is the bond that unites three generations. It’s the curiosity and the passion for entrepreneurship shared by two friends. It’s the desire to pass on the French savoir-faire and to create unique pieces of jewelry that tell a story: yours.


Atelier Paulin jewelry is made using an ancestral technique that was on the verge of being lost forever: the art of hand-crafting a piece of jewelry with precious metal wire. We have reinterpreted this savoir-faire and made it our own, enriching it with our own skills, experiences and emotions... We train each one of our artisans whose talented hands transmit this magnificent art in our ateliers every day in Paris and New York and send them across the world.
Transmission is the essence of our brand.
In the heart of New-York, a team of artisans put all their love and passion into shaping each precious metal wire.
Each creation is handcrafted and made to order in our atelier, making it completely unique.
Our jewelry mirrors our emotions. We write what’s in our heart, what we love, what drives us, what fascinates us. A declaration of love, a birth, a special occasion…a word, a name, a child, a spouse, a lover… Timless, delicate and refined, our jewelry is made from a single precious metal wire: argentium, 9K and 14K gold-filled wire. Our range of 18K gold wire jewelry in yellow, rose or white gold fulfills every fantasy. Made to order, each creation is a visual representation of your personal form of poetry.
The bracelet is Atelier Paulin’s signature item. Personalization is in our genes. We’ve created our own designs: earcuffs rings, pins, hoops, cufflinks, necklaces; plus other innovations like twisted or hammered threads.
