After more than ten years in a small and rather too quiet street, Elsa Vanier has moved to the busy area of Odéon in Paris. A great move for her choice of accessible and contemporary jewelry that deserves to be better known. Some suggestions are pieces by Agathe Saint Girons, Florence Croisier or Claire Wolfstirn. Elsa Vanier is also the only one in Paris to offer those open Niessing wedding rings, where a diamond appears as if suspended between the ring’s two extremities.
