Les Georgettes is a brand created by Maison Altesse (the Altesse "House") - France's leading jewellery manufacturer - in partnership with Breton leather goods manufacturer Texier: two "Living Heritage Companies" (Entreprises du Patrimoine Vivant) that belong to the Renaissance Luxury Group.
In 1905, in the heart of the Marais district of Paris, at 62 rue Charlot, Marius Legros, a talented young craftsman, created his jewellery business. In 1912, he joined his family in Saint-Martin-De-Valamas in the Ardèche valley, where he opened a jewellery factory. In 1917, his brother Georges opened the Bijoux GL workshops in the neighbouring town of Cheylard. For a century, the Legros brothers' two companies grew side by side, becoming France's leading producers of gold-plated jewellery, before eventually merging to form Maison Altesse.
Today, Maison Altesse, the last major jewellery manufacturer in France, employs more than 200 artisans and sells modern and affordable jewellery all over the world, renowned for their exceptional quality.
The Les Georgettes brand, named in honour of Georges Legros, founder of Maison Altesse, offers innovative collections of jewellery and accessories in a silver, gold or rose gold finish, with endless possibilities for personalisation and collection.
