Born to a French mother and American father, Valérie MacCarthy grew up in New York City immersed in two creative cultures.

After studying voice in the United States and Italy, she began her career in opera, and singing soprano on the most prestigious stages around the world. In her free time, Valérie created jewelry which quickly attracted the attention of other performers—who became her first clients.

Today, she draws inspiration from the energy and creativity of Paris and New York, and works with gold, diamonds, gemstones, wood and sterling silver to create pieces that range from romantic-chic and neo-rock. Each piece is handmade and assembled in Italy by the experienced Italian artisans.

Valérie named her collections after the four elements of nature:

Crystal Waters

Ring of Fire

Salt of the Earth

Winds of Change


We think Valérie MacCarthy is a force of nature and invite you to visit Place Vendôme Jewelers to see her creations.
