The Designer : Anna Rivka
“A CULTURAL HERITAGE TIED TO JEWELLERY”
Aesthetes, Rivka’s parents passed down to her very early on a taste for precious things, and more specifically, a cultural heritage tied to jewellery. So very naturally, at just 18 years old, she joined the established jewellery school on Rue du Louvre. She then decided to perfect her training with the jewellery artisan Meilleur Ouvrier de France, who taught her a meticulous savoir-faire and allowed her to explore all of the techniques that hide behind the creation of a piece of jewellery. Convinced of her talent, this mentor predicted her future as a designer. He was right…
“SHE WISHES TO REINTRODUCE SENSIVITY TO WOMEN'S DAILY WARDROBE”
In 2006, Rivka chose to put her imagination at the service of jewellery and launch her own brand: Anna Rivka.
Across her collections, the young Parisian hopes to revisit the repertoire of classic jewellery, giving it a breath of fresh air and modernity. She applies to brass the same techniques as those taught on precious metals. Very inspired by Art Nouveau, the Viennese Secession movement, classical singing and classical theatre, which she practices, she wishes to reintroduce sensitivity to women’s daily wardrobe.
“AN OSCILLATION BETWEEN PURE SYMMETRY AND AN ABUNDANCE OF CURVES”
Her vocabulary? Organic forms, the representation of themes such as fish, birds, and vegetation, and stylistic floral compositions. Her syntax? An oscillation between pure symmetry and an abundance of curves. Her conjugation? None. Rivka’s creations are timeless.
The designer makes the tiara her centrepiece. In her hands, this piece of ancient jewellery is reborn, becoming a daily accessory that enhances feminine allure.
Very attached to craftsmanship, all of her jewellery is handmade in Paris by an orchestra of accomplished artisans.
“A FINE JEWELLERY LINE THAT CAN BE FOUND IN HER PARISIEN FITTING ROOM”
In 2011, Rivka reunites with her first love by launching a jewellery line that can be found in her Salon Parisien.
In 2013, after meeting with perfumer Olivier Polge, her first perfume “Eveil” is born, a creation that revisits codes from the Golden Age of Perfumery using advanced techniques and luxurious raw materials. This fragrance, powdery and delicate, is magnified by a bottle imagined as a jewel…
Ten years after its creation, the brand knows success with the press and also commercially in France and internationally, especially in Japan. Her boutique-atelier located at the heart of the Palais Royal, in the 1rd arrondissement of Paris, is never empty.
It is from precious artistic collaborations and specific affinities for art and artisans that Rivka continues to eternally project her desire to create.
