As I start to prepare for my trip to Paris next week, I rediscovered some summer photos of two shops in the stylish 6th arrondissement where I will be staying again, that I never had time to share. The first is Philippe Ferrandis. Since 1986, Ferrandis has been handcrafting his whimsical and colorful costume jewelry. While not much of a secret (the designer has several shops in Paris), he is notable for his very wearable yet distinctive statements pieces.
Inspired by old Hollywood and classic glamour, Ferrandis’ stores are like a candy shops for jewelry lovers.
Working with semi-precious stones, his creations are playful yet elegant, bold yet refined and colorful yet harmonious.
This spectacular coral necklace was a favorite.
With a wide variety of styles and range of sizes, there is something for almost every taste
Another charming outpost of covetable finds is on the tempting Rue Jacob. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the name of the shop in my files (I will be sure to find it and report back) but it is on the same block and across the street from favorite Michelle Aragon. With both home and fashion offerings, it is a treasure trove of goods mostly handmade in Venice.
A wonderful selection of sumptuous velvet pillows,
unusual decorative accoutrements as well as artisanal jewelry and fashion accessories beckon in an almost bazaar-like array. I was seriously tempted by these beautiful lace necklaces, each different in their delicate snowflake like form.
In the end, I decided on a fabulous beaded collar that I have already worn on multiple occasions. I will be touching base a couple more times before heading to Deco Off and some exciting adventures I can’t wait to share.

I love the rock crystal intersperced with the colored stones–rough and tumble yet so sophisticated.
Now those are necklaces that should be worn on the red carpet. Stylists alert!
Oh, I love love the jewelry and have bookmarked the shop for my next trip: what fabulous colors and textures. Look forward to seeing all the details of your trip and M&O and all of Paris!
These selections are just…beautiful…particularly the last image! Now, this is the kind of jewelry I enjoy and “don’t worry” about. Bon Voyage! franki
Stacey, thanks so much for posting about these gorgeous shops, can’t wait to check them out. I love the bright colors at Philippe Ferrandis. Have fun preparing and anticipating your trip. Hope to see you there! XO
So eager to visually follow along on your journey back to Paris!
How exciting! As I sit here at my dining table on this still morning, listening to a group of Kookaburra’s laughing in the big tree, I can dream of Paris! These little gems of yours are so appreciated Stacey and are going straight onto the list for my trip in May! Thank You!
Oooh, Rue Jacob! Definitely one of the best streets in the world! Are you heading to les puces as well? I’ve not been in a while and I am dying to go. Have a wonderful trip – looking forward to reading all about it. Cheers, Jacqueline
Well this is right up my opulent alley! Those fabrics… swoon! Thank you for the intro to Ferrandis. Off to go explore more of these eye-catching pieces of jewelry.
