The first Merci Maman bracelet was crafted in 2007 by Béatrice de Montille, a French mum living in London, from her kitchen table. Béatrice now sits alongside her husband, Arnaud, and their team of 20 in their London studio. ‘Merci Maman’ translates to ‘thank you Mummy’ in English and is a nod to the creators’ French origins and the original celebration of the mother and child bond. The jewellery is now loved by men, women, boys and girls of all ages and is even treasured by royalty – The Duchess of Cambridge wears a Merci Maman necklace engraved with Prince George’s name! Their signature Merci Maman orange gift boxes revealing the necklaces, bracelets, rings and accessories are now being given to loved ones all over the world.
Merci Maman holds love, joy and friendship at the heart of every design. Inspired by our French roots and handmade in our London studio, each individual piece of jewellery tells a unique story. The personalisations are all hand engraved with elegance and precision, making the gift giving and receiving experience extra special. Every element, from the materials and crafting skills to the distinctive signature orange boxes, is used to create the perfect gifts for your loved ones to cherish.
