Diamantaire Simon D. Fettmann soon unleashed the artist within him; his hidden talent that naturally led him to jewellery design.
In his small workshop in rue des Capucins Simon gave free rein to his seemingly endless imagination, which, paired with his skill, generated unique pieces that were the perfect synergy of breathtaking gems and the most noble of materials...
The outcome was much more than jewellery line. It marked the birth of a new style: the Simon D. Fettmann style, the ultimate combination of Simon’s outstanding diamond cutting skills and his new talent as up and coming master jeweller. At that stage, all that was left to do was for Simon to showcase his masterpieces to the public, in November 1985 at 43, Grand-Rue in Luxembourg-City.
It did not take long for Simon to secure the loyalty of regular customers, first from Luxembourg and then from abroad. His professional attitude as well as his perfectionism meant he was soon playing in the big league. Before long the most renowned jewellers from Place Vendôme in Paris - Van Cleef & Arpels, Boucheron, Mauboussin and Chaumet - considered him one of their own.
Simon built a genuine partnership with each and every one of those companies and was granted the exclusive right to sell their exceptional designs in Luxembourg on 29 November 1997, on a ‘new Place Vendôme’ at 11, rue Philippe II.
Another milestone in Simon’s career was 5 December 2008 when his store became an official ‘Boutique Mauboussin’ and thus a worthy representative of the prestigious house that was founded on Place Vendôme in Paris in 1827. Simon D. Fettmann was appointed manager of the Luxembourg Mauboussin Boutique. It was an invaluable accolade for an artist unique in his devotion and passion for the craft.
