When the jewellery brands were bought by the major luxury goods companies, they decided to handle all the creative aspects themselves in order not to have to buy from others. There was a danger that the workshops, which supplied these jewellery brands with models, would become manufacturers dependent on the brands’ orders or decisions to relocate. Faced with this situation, Mathon, a family-run company founded in 1931, decided to launch its own brand. Its workshop, which is located close to Paris’ jewellery quarter in the Place Vendôme, works for about six well-known brands. It has a specialised level of expertise as well as being able to anticipate precisely the manufacturing times of new and complex pieces. The company also has to make sure that the creations for its brand, ‘Mathon Paris’, are ready in time for the jewellery collections to be presented to the Japanese, Korean, Chinese and United Arab Emirates’ markets.
