    The collection Little Prince

    Monnaie de Paris created this collection in 2006, for sixty years of the Little Prince, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and revalued in 2014 with new products. These precious jewels, bracelets and in gold and silver medals, are realized in the hand by the creative craftsmen right in the heart of Paris. They stage the Little Prince according to the original drawings of the author. These creations offer themselves to all the lovers of this poetic universe, for a birth or a civil baptism.

    Monnaie de Paris is the oldest institution of France, fully qualified teacher of the label « Entreprise du patrimoine vivant » and « Joaillerie de France ». All the jewels are manufactured, made in gold 750°/00 or silver 950°/00. They are marked with an awl, the horn of plenty, parking of the origin and the authenticity.

    Jewels, a tradition of Monnaie de Paris
    Monnaie de Paris registers History and the French culture in the noble metal. Craftsmen engravers immortalize and develop a know-how, a fruit of a tradition of 12 centuries. The heart of job by the Parisian workshops is the monetary strike. This technique is transposed into the manufacturing of jewels and constitutes the exceptional character. Monnaie de Paris is inspired by great masterpieces (Botticelli, Raphaël, Van Eyck), republishes old coins and calls on to contemporary artists. The whole collection counts more than 500 references.

    Our craftman


      Our creations are enamelled using a rare technique known as grand feu enamelling. Another workshop sends the enameller a decoration, piece of jewellery or struck medal with hollow spaces on its surface. Using a dip pen, needle or brush, the enameller fills these hollows with enamel, which they have prepared themselves. The fixing of the variously coloured enamel powders is controlled by short, successive firings at 900 degrees.


      Trained at the best schools, they have the years of experience behind them necessary to master all aspects of the craft. Using industrial oil-based modelling clay and working from a design executed freehand or with CAD software, they skilfully fashion a low relief model in order to enhance the engraving and the way it catches the light. They work alternately with concave and convex plaster moulds until satisfied they have achieved the best 3D rendering of the design.
