Behind the Galerie Pénélope lies a story, but above all a passion for stories.
Inspired by Penelope, her grandmother, who throughout her life nourished her intellectual coquetry with precious objects and books, Camille, the founder, decided to turn these common passions into a profession, hunting historical treasures full of emotions.
Our young gemologist has been modernizing the world of antique jewelry since 2016. She is launching her business first on social media, before opening an online store in 2019.
The most beautiful pieces are selected thanks to her experience acquired as an appraiser at a Parisian antiquarian shop, then in the Haute Joaillerie at the Chaumet house.
Camille has a double degree in gemology, from the GIA in New York (Graduate Gemologist) and the HRD in Antwerp (Diamond Grader). She also holds a bachelor's degree in marketing.
Antique jewelry now takes its rightful place: a unique piece of jewelry, which by its rarity becomes precious, beyond its own value.
Far from belonging to these jewels that you buy and then forget them almost immediately, these treasures then take on a sustainable dimension by extending their lifespan when they enter yours.
The pieces that Galerie Pénélope finds for you are precious objects, full of stories and emotions, which will accompany you all your life, and perhaps in others...
