Régis CARRE

A bold designer in the tropics

Following his studies at jewelry design school NICOLAS FLAMEL in Paris, he lived in the capital for a while to start drilling into his career, repairing, transforming and making all sorts of jewels at a number of renowned local workshops. He then worked as a subcontractor for prestigious brands such as Cartier, Mauboussin, Poiray, Tiffany & Co, Hermès and would craft custom masterpieces for them.

In 1993, he felt an irresistible desire to travel and set sails for French Polynesia where he literally fell in love with the country and with the world-famous black pearl. This beautiful material harvested from the turquoise lagoons of French Polynesia inspired him, so much so that he decided to set up a workshop in Tahiti and now offers unique crafts made of precious stones and black pearls.

In 2017, he scaled up his business with a partnership with Ann. Together they have opened a jewelry store nestled in Pape’ete around the Market where, in a splendid showcase, their inspiration and their delicate art of jewelry catch the eye of those in quest of the beautiful.

Ann SIMON

Passion for precious stones

Ann Simon is a self-taught artist in her life course and it was during her childhood in Madagascar that she got to learn about precious stones.

 

Ann has a passion for the sea and she took on many challenges: sailing, drama, catering… but it was not until she met with the great Joaillerie Parisienne that her destiny took a new turn in the antipodes. Her real power: listen and make dreams come true, sublimate the desire to please and enable you to express it in the form of a ring, a necklace … a jewel. Meeting lots of demanding customers in Bora Bora and Tahiti for so many years made Ann a prominent specialist in precious stones. Since she has lived in French Polynesia, she naturally came to combine the unique qualities of the black pearl of Tahiti with those of ruby, sapphire, amethyst … and mostly diamond to create outstanding jewels.

 

Founder of jewelry store “ANN SIMON BOUTIQUE” on MO’OREA island, Ann has now partnered with her 20 year-long friend, Régis CARRE and the two opened boutique store “PEARL ARTISTS” in PAPE’ETE.
