🐥 Early stages :
Since my earliest childhood, I remember spending hours emptying my grandmother's jewelry drawer. An eternity trying on each of her bracelets, necklaces, asking her where they came from, what material they were made of.
I also remember that inexplicable love for stones, which my sweet mother had to face quickly. But she made this passion useful, and set up an efficient and powerful reward system : every trimester, if I got good grades, she would offer me a small stone. I was overjoyed.
An unconditional love for stones and jewelry from an early age, which obviously led me to a career as ... a bank and insurance consultant.
🐥 The big jump :
No more jokes. After 8 years of working in the financial sector, years of indecision, ideas, desires, and dreams... it is in 2020, the year of my 30th birthday, that I finally decide to take risks. Farewell to a career as an organization consultant, this year will be the right one. A resignation later on, here I am today, talking to you about jewels ...
🐥 The values :
What I wished to transmit to you with 20-20 Paris is first of all this love of jewels, stones and beautiful things.
It is also to show you that it is possible to consume differently and intelligently, by limiting our production and thus our pollution.
But it is also and above all to pass on to you all this love that our treasures have experienced, these emotional bonds that were created with their previous owners. Transmit to you fragments of stories about each of our pieces, tell you what era they have lived through. Because jewels are not only objects, they are above all an emotion.
These stories that we deliver to you are to bring you softness, comfort, and happiness.
🐥 The name of 20-20 Paris :
20-20 Paris, in reference to this special year that 2020 has been, obviously from a global point of view, but also from a personal point of view : a new committed decade, a career change, and a first step in entrepreneurship.
But 20-20 was above all my dad's nickname, Sylvain. A tribute that I want to pay him a decade later, to tell him that I love him.
🐥 And now :
After this leap into the void, my heart is still animated by the same passion, and warmed by incomparable happiness : to feel free, alive and creative. Laughing, again and again. Sharing, transmitting, giving.
Satisfy this entrepreneurial desire.
And finally hold high your own dreams.
