Legion Paris Custom Jewelry is the fusion of the talent of two atypical jewelry artists: Lucie Lebrun and Angela Oheix.
They met at the prestigious and renowned Ecole Boulle in 2015 where they learned the art of traditional jewelry making, both already experienced in the field. The end of the school year was a revelation, and they fought hard to bring out their singular inspirations from raw metal and melt them into exceptional works of jewelry.
Legion was born. Born from a necessity to be close to the concrete material. Drawing on the ancestral knowledge of fine art and traditional craftsmanship, they chose to make each piece a work of art handcrafted in their workshop here in France, in Paris. The most precious grey metals such as silver, platinum or white or black gold quickly become their favorite materials for their graphic aura and timeless strength. Each one of their jewelry pieces is unique and wear the imprint of the hammer, file or saw that gives it life and makes it different.
The collections are most often inspired by the brutality of nature transcribed in a work around the texture of metal and the transcendental beauty of natural stones. Concerned about their environment, the two artists use recycled metal and only work with suppliers who guarantee a true ethic in their production. The endless time they spend on their old 19th century workbench making their exceptional pieces of jewelry guarantees a handcrafted quality that is eternal. In addition, Legion Paris always strives for perfection in the comfort of its pieces: all jewelry should be an integral part of your body so that you wear it every day with joy and pride.
The core business of Legion Paris is also to transfer and concretise your imagination in your hands with custom-made jewellery creations. This is why Angela and Lucie were keen in 2018 to get closer to you quickly by opening their workshop-boutique in the 9th arrondissement of Paris. An extremely dynamic adventure that quickly allowed the duo to embark on the adventure of a prestigious address since in June 2022 they set up shop at 5 rue du Marché Saint-Honoré in Paris 1er, 190m from the very prestigious Place Vendôme. In a boutique with an elegant and brutalist style, placing their workbench at the centre of the place, the two artists work with passion and precision to create jewellery that has a soul, because aren't emotions the ultimate luxury in a totally digitalized world?
Legion Paris restores the timeless value of preciousness in works of art that will be inherited, passing on stories and traditions from generation to generation.

Our creative jewelry in Paris is all made by an artist with a sure technique to reveal all the beauty of jewels and precious metals: their unique aura reflects various emotions. These jewels seduce by their extreme purity or their very assertive lines, sometimes a little offbeat.
Developed for those who demand both originality and perfection, creations with precious metals in Paris are exceptional gifts to give to oneself or to those you care about the most.
The know-how of the Paris jeweler
The Paris jeweler creates each piece to order. We make unique pieces that differ slightly from those presented on the site. You can be sure that you are wearing an extraordinary piece of jewelry that belongs to you alone.
If your order is for a custom-made piece of jewelry in Paris, we take the time to listen to you and to understand perfectly what you want. We can offer you a jewel made of recycled precious metals: white gold (white gold and palladium), white gold, yellow gold, black gold, silver and mixed precious metals or created from an old object that you used to own. You give a second life to a piece of jewelry that you no longer wear or that was broken.
Alliances created by Legion Paris
Made of gold or silver, hammered wedding rings, that is to say, shaped in the most rustic way as in antiquity, can be entirely personalized with diamonds set all around the perimeter or engraved with stick letters or calligraphic writing. It all depends on the values transmitted through this jewel that will remain on the finger of the couple throughout their lives.
The wedding ring is traditionally a symbol of love, mutual respect and fidelity but each couple can decide to distinguish themselves by transposing, via the chosen materials, other vows.
Legion Paris engagement rings
Engagement rings are no longer just for women. Everyone can choose a ring for their fiancé or fiancée. Legion Paris guides you in the selection of a jewel with remarkable lines and formed of one or more rings sometimes set with stones of matching colors.
The pure and airy aesthetics of the rings created by the jewelry artists in Paris seduce at first sight. Choose a stone that matches your spouse's personality and identity: red garnet, purple spinel, champagne or black diamond, sky blue aquamarine, pastel indigo blue iolite, etc.!
Stones used for jewelry making in Paris
All of the stones used by Legion Paris come from French diamond lapidaries and are therefore extremely pure. Their traceability is guaranteed. We look for the stones you wish to see on your refined jewelry and insert them in a protective case with claws. They can be :
- moonstones : white or black with reflections ;
- topazes of pale yellow, colorless, red, blue or pink color;
- sapphires with a recognized hardness;
- diamonds cut in different ways;
- opals, tourmalines, covellines, aquamarine, spinel, etc.
As a designer of precious metal jewelry and jewelers in Paris, we seek above all to differentiate our collections so that our jewelry looks like no other and helps you feel unique and privileged. The stones are cut with style taking into account the size of the ring and the desired effect. The Brunnera ring, for example, consists of two hammered white gold bands with a traditional oval bezel with 4 red gold claws set with bluish iolite. The Artio pendant in silver representing a bear whose eyes are magnified by black diamonds asserts the virile and indomitable character of today's men.
