May is the work of designer Noémie Gonzalez. Obsessed with the craftsmanship of art and manual work, she taught herself the precious techniques and traditions of making jewellery, then enrolled herself in Paris’ prestigious Ecole Boulle to perfect her talents. Finally, in 2016 Gonzalez decided to create May, a jewellery house that is the essence of refined, pared-down beauty – with architectural shapes contributing to pieces that are graphic and sculptural. It was after the launch of her debut collection, dubbed ‘Finesse’, that Gonzalez brought her brand to Maisons de Mode in 2017.
In order to sync her passions with her standards, all of her creations are available in gold versions and silver versions, with materials either recycled or fair-trade (as designated by Fairmined). Each piece is conceived then created in her atelier-boutique in Lille, meaning that her work is 100 % made in France. Her approach is meticulous and attentive to detail: she designs, cuts, solders and even polishes each piece thanks to her mastery of each skill.
A jewellery piece is often symbolic of the person who wears it. To satisfy different tastes for style, Gonzalez offers permanent collections as well as a service to personalise jewellery for all of your life’s precious moments.
