Our story begins in Paris, in 1905. Marius Legros made the decision to set up his own jewelry business located at 62 rue Charlot, in the heart of the famous Marais district. In 1912, he returned to his family home in Saint-Martin-De-Valamas, a valley in the Ardèche region, where he established his own jewelry workshop.
