Howdy everyone!

I'm headed to France & Switzerland and will have extra time on my hands to wander the shops. Does anyone know any not-to-miss jewelry stores in Paris, Zurich or Bern?

Thanks in advance!

None of these are bargains, and compared to London or Brughton, the pickings are slim. But Zurich does have a few good shops. The two I can remember are:


Is in the center of the old town, worth a visit as it is easy and quite large (for Switerland), no appointment required.



Hedley Prinn is also central but you should call to arrange an appointment/check opening times. He is very nice, has limited inventory, but is priced better than a storefront.

I'll be back with others if I can remember them. And by remember, I mean dig through my 3 shoeboxes full of blung related business cards!

I haven’t been to the shop yet bc I learned about it after having left Paris, but Maison Mohs in St Germain neighborhood in Paris has some pretty stuff on their Etsy site. I plan on going in person this summer.

ETA - Dary’s is well known too. I was last in Paris in 2019 before the pandemic and that was before I was obsessed with vintage. Gah! Can’t wait to go back and explore so please during your trip if you find something good keep us posted.

I'll let you guys know how it goes. Thanks for the recommendations! I've heard fabulous things about Dary's, and Mohs looks intriguing!
