Mellerio, oldest jeweler in the world, undergoes a rejuvenation

Following its recruitment of star dancer Hugo Marchand as ambassador, Mellerio, several centuries old, announces an exclusive partnership with New York retailer Bergdorf Goodman.


The world’s oldest jeweler, Mellerio, announced this Friday, February 9, an exclusive partnership with Bergdorf Goodman, the major New York department store located in Midtown Manhattan.


The high jewelry house is renowned for having stood the test of time since its inception in 1613. To reward the Mellerio family (who arrived in France in 1515) for thwarting a plot against her young son Louis XIII, Marie de Medici granted them privileges.


Representing the fourteenth generation, Laure-Isabelle Mellerio is today the president (since 2018) and artistic director (since 2015) of the eponymous company. An interior architect, art historian, and gemology graduate, she is the first woman to hold this position.


Established since 1815 at 9 rue de la Paix, the House is one of the few French jewelers to remain independent after the wave of acquisitions by large groups during the 80s. The company’s shares are still 100% owned by the Mellerio family, which is one of the 56 members of the International Club of Hénokiens, grouping bicentennial family businesses.
