ALLUSIONS IN GOLD.  SCULPTURAL NARRATIVES, ABSTRACT TREASURES AND BESPOKE MEMENTOS, CARVED   AND CRAFTED FROM MEMORY RECOLLECTED AND THE IMAGINATION INSPIRITED, EMBELLISHED IN AN OPUS OF RARE AND PRECIOUS GEMSTONES WHOSE EXQUISITE PECULIARITIES IN SHADE, SHAPE, LUSTRE CONCEAL ARCANE EMOTIONS OF THE CONDITIO HUMANA IN ALL ITS PROFUNDITY.   HEDONE ROMANE IS A CELEBRATION AND A LAMENTATION

OF THE LUXURY OF BEING. 

                   COINED FROM THE DOCTRINE OF 'HEDONISM', THAT ESTEEMED PLEASURE AS THE HIGHEST GOOD; AND THE ARTISTIC AND LITERARY MOVEMENT OF 'ROMANTICISM', THAT EXALTED STRONG EMOTIONS AND THE IMAGINATION.                 HEDONE ROMANE  FINE JEWELLERY IS THE QUINTESSENCE  OF A HEDONISTIC AND ROMANTIC LIFE.

                           A PASSIONATE EXISTENCE OF LOVE AND GLORY, OF BEAUTY AND IMPERFECTION, OF DESIRE AND DESOLATION, OF STRIFE AND INDOMITABLE HOPE, OF DEATH, OTHERWORLDS, AND IMMORTAL DREAMS.  AN OPERATIC RHAPSODY OF DRAMATIC ENDINGS AND HAPPY TRAGEDIES CAST AND MOLDED INTO ARTISTIC VANITIES FOR ETERNITY.  JEWELS OF NOCTURNAL SOPHISTICATION, MODERN OPULENCE AND A COSMOPOLITAN FLARE CREATED FROM NOBLE MATERIALS.  AN ACQUIRED TASTE FOR JEWELLERY CONNOISSEURS.

 

"A Jeanne-Marie, pour qui le goût, l'élégance, et le chic sont une second nature..."

Thierry Coudert, author of Cafe Society

      HEDONE ROMANE'S CREATIVE SOUL, JEANNE-MARIE CHAN, HAS WORKED FOR SEVERAL LUXURY HOUSES NOTABLY VAN CLEEF & ARPELS AND LVMH WATCH & JEWELLERY (INCLUDING DE BEERS, CHAUMET, FRED, DIOR, ETC)  IN INTERNATIONAL STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT AND MARKETING.  HER LONGSTANDING DESIRE TO SHARE HER VISION OF JEWELLERY MARKED THE BEGINNINGS OF HEDONE ROMANE ON AVENUE MONTAIGNE IN PARIS THE WINTER OF 2006.

 

          BORN IN MANILA OF CANTONESE DESCENT, DIAMONDS AND RUBIES ARE PART OF HER CULTURE AND DISTINGUISHING BEAUTIFUL STONES COMES INNATELY TO HER.  AFTER GRADUATING 'CUM LAUDE' AND A RIGOROUS CAREER IN INVESTMENT BANKING, SHE LEFT FOR PARIS IN 1999 WHERE SHE PURSUED AN MBA SPECIALIZED IN LUXURY AT ESSEC AND DESIGN COURSES AT ECOLE DU LOUVRE BJO,                                          A MOVE THAT WAS CLOSER TO HEART.

 

WITH HER CREATIVE SEAT IN PARIS, JEANNE-MARIE BRINGS A MODERNLY OPULENT AND A COSMOPOLITAN FLARE TOGETHER WITH THE FINEST ARTISANS AND JEWELLERY WORKSHOPS.  SHE TAKES FINE JEWELLERY BEYOND THE FASCINATION FOR SIMPLY FORM INTO A UNIVERSE OF ROMANTIC ALLUSIONS EXPRESSED IN GLAMOUROUS GOLD, VIVID PRECIOUS STONES, AND FORMS THAT ARE OFTEN IRREGULARLY PARADOXICAL, CURVACEOUSLY SEDUCTIVE, AND ALWAYS POMPOUSLY DRAMATIC   - SUCH AS THE 'TOUCH ME NOT' COLLECTION - A ROMANTIC INTERPRETATION OF THE ENIGMATIC BACCARA ROSE.

 

JEANNE-MARIE DOES COMMISSIONED PIECES AND DESIGNS FOR WOMEN WHOSE EXQUISITE TASTE CARRIES BOTH FINE JEWELLERY AND FASHION JEWELLERY.  HER UNIQUE HAND-MADE TREASURES FORM PART OF 'TRAVELLING COLLECTIONS' AND HAVE BEEN SHOWCASED AT LE BON MARCHE IN PARIS, THE MONACO CHARITY FILM FESTIVAL IN MONTE CARLO, ARTCURIAL IN PARIS AS WELL AS SELFRIDGES IN LONDON.

 

IN 2010, INSPIRED BY A HEDONISTIC APPROACH TO CREATIVITY WHERE ART IS FREE, INSTINCTIVE, AND BEAUTIFULLY UNCONDITIONED, HEDONE ROMANE INTRODUCED FASHION JEWELLERY COLLECTIONS AVAILABLE IN MULTI-BRAND CONCEPT STORES IN EUROPE.
