what does the le gramme universe inspire you?

elegance in simplicity. i really appreciate the minimalist design of le gramme jewelry. each creation seems to get straight to the point. rings, bracelets, and pendants are sleek and easy to wear. they appear natural once worn around the neck or wrist. they embrace each individual's personality. before discovering the collections imagined by erwan le louër, i already wore some jewelry while practicing my sport. they complement and accentuate my style. i own a gold chain and two custom-made rings, one in silver and the other in gold. on one of them, the sun and the ocean are engraved because i grew up in the water when i learned to surf.

what are your favorite le gramme creations?

i really appreciate the wide ribbon bracelets in yellow gold and the thinner ones in silver that i stack around my wrist. they both work wonderfully together. i love the round necklace, a gold circle hanging on a chain that i wear all the time.

if le gramme were a sport discipline?

excellent question! i would say fencing because it's a sport that is both elegant and precise, just like le gramme creations. fencing also reflects the intrinsic values of the brand. .

progress and evolve. learn at every moment and develop my physical abilities.
