nu atelier® explores radically minimal jewelry where the duality of gold and silver highlights the beauty of metal in the nude. Nourished by multiple inspirations that are diverted to experiment a hybrid approach to jewelry, the brand is guided by the desire to abolish conventional barriers while preserving the exigent crafting of high jewelry.
We work exclusively with noble and precious metals: solid 925 sterling silver and solid 18-karat yellow gold (stamped 750/1000) which is the best gold alloy in terms of purity and resistance.
These durable metals do not deteriorate over time and their shine is easily restored if they have become slightly oxidized. We don't use gold plating or gilding as they are often fragile.
The nu atelier® project constantly questions its processes to ensure optimal social and environmental impact.
Our jewelry workshops and packaging manufacturers are all French and for the most part based locally in the Drôme department of the Rhône-Alpes region.
We’ve chosen partners who share our values. We work with trustworthy, human-sized manufacturers; our jewelry workshops are certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council and our textile workshop fosters social and professional reintegration.
The RJC (Responsible Jewellery Council) is a non-profit organization that provides its members with a clear Code of Practices notably in terms of human rights, labour practices and environmental sustainability.
