Les Georgettes is a brand created by Maison Altesse. In 1905, in the heart of the Marais district of Paris, at 62 rue Charlot, Marius Legros, a talented young craftsman, created his jewellery business. In 1912, he joined his family in Saint-Martin-De-Valamas in the Ardèche valley, where he opened a jewellery factory. In 1917, his brother Georges opened the Bijoux GL workshops in the neighbouring town of Cheylard. For a century, the Legros brothers' two companies grew side by side, becoming France's leading producers of gold-plated jewellery, before eventually merging to form Maison Altesse. 


Today, Maison Altesse, the last major jewellery manufacturer in France, employs more than 200 artisans and sells modern and affordable jewellery all over the world, renowned for their exceptional quality. 

Les Georgettes brand, named in honour of Georges Legros, founder of Maison Altesse, offers innovative collections of jewellery and accessories in a silver, gold or rose gold finish, with endless possibilities for personalisation and collection.


GFO Certification 

Guaranteed French Origin certification is delivered by an independent certification body. It is awarded to brands that meet two major criteria: a product that is 100% made in France, and at least 50% of the product's manufacturing costs (including raw materials) are of French origin. A control is then carried out each year to check that these criteria are respected. At the initiative of the Pro France association created in 2010 to promote French manufacturing, this certification was rolled out in September 2011. It now covers nearly 3,000 product ranges and promotes their French origin as well as the know-how of craftsmen. Thanks to this certification, you can be completely sure of the origin of your product.
