OUR STORY

Founded in the heart of Paris, KMO Paris is a jewellery brand in which each piece is a true work of art.

For over a decade, founders Caroline and Francois-Xavier have poured their heart and soul into KMO Paris, creating jewellery that is unique, sensual and exudes femininity. It is with chic and colourful designs that we produce high end pieces with magnificent light reflects and that are super lightweight.

It is with a love for each other, a love for artistic collaboration, a love for their children, a love of their workers and a love of travel that Caroline and Francois have created a brand that is playful, expressive, bold and elegant. KMO Paris is a true love affair.

“WE BELIEVE JEWELLERY SHOULD LIFT YOU UP, NOT WEIGH YOU DOWN”

Caroline a decouvert la passion pour l’Art et en particulier les Bijoux depuis son plus jeune age. Apres de nombreux voyages et en particulier a Bali, elle a decide de creer et de fabriquer ses premieres Creations. Le success fut immediat car c’est entre autre la marque Paul Smith et les Parfums Caron qui lui ont achetes ses premieres creations.

 Francois-Xavier is a Graduated in the Jewelery-Goldsmithing Sector. He has developed numerous patents in the field. After his Romantic encounter with Caroline, he began to diversify into Objects and more particularly in the customization of Old and Contemporary Art Objects. Caroline discovered a passion for Art and especially Jewelry from a young age. After many trips and especially in Bali, she decided to create and manufacture her first Creations. The success was immediate because it was among others the Paul Smith brand and Caron Perfumes which bought her first creations.

LOCATION

Designed in Paris, France.
Inspired by one of the most romantic cities in the world, our founders Francois-Xavier and Caroline never fail to find something beautiful around every Parisian street corner to inspire their next piece.

Offices located in Paris, New York & Bali.
With a focus on maintaining our global community, it is important for us to host our agents, distributors and the press in our showrooms where our current collections are displayed. Our pieces are manufactured in a full-service, company-owned production facility in Bali, Indonesia.

PROCESS

Each of our pieces are created using our unique Kamelite process, where genuine Sterling Silver powder is mixed with an unlimited range of coloured resins. This industry-first material construction allows magnificent light reflection in an endless range of colour across our collections, including trend driven styles such as the perfect ombre effect.

The metal base is composed of Magnesium-AL, another KMO Paris innovation, making our jewellery extremely lightweight, oxidation-free and naturally hypoallergenic.

It is our combination of materials and innovative design that makes KMO Paris truly unique. We continue to build a synergy between classic jewellery design and modern styling, with each design focused on texture and motion.
