The quintessential French town of Saint Tropez is well known for fashion, with iconic labels such as Chanel, Dior and Louis Vuitton all having a noticeable presence in the picturesque centre ville.
Many of our clients planning a holiday in one of our St Tropez House villas this year might not realize however that there are also a large number of bespoke jewelry boutiques also scattered amongst the exclusive clothes shops, art galleries and restaurants.
Below is our top pick of jewelry shops in the heart of Saint Tropez, some a mere wander from our more central luxury properties to rent in the town.
This highly reputable jewelry shop was founded in Avignon in 1820. Fast forward 150 years and the Louis Julian family opened a store in Saint Tropez on the Passage du Port and more recently on Plage Tahiti for clients holidaying near Plage Pampelonne in the height of the summer. The jewelry shop, now run by the sixth generation of the Julian family, has an impressive range of prestigious brands such as ROLEX, AUDEMARS PIGUET, and CHOPARD to name but a few.
This boutique is also now an institution in Saint Tropez, having opened in the heart of Saint Tropez in 1980. The shop has a large number of collections of jewelry and watches, from classic to ultra-modern to suit all ages and styles. Just off the Places des Lices in boulevard Vasserot, Schaming Joaillier is open all year round.
Fred Samuel was a legendary French jeweler who started in the business as a young designer in 1936. Inspired by the French Riviera’s light and scenery, Fred’s signature work is highly bespoke and can be seen in the label’s impressive two story shop in the centre of Saint Tropez. Here visitors to Saint Tropez will find many of Fred’s famous collections such as Force 10, Baie des Anges and Pain de Sucre.
Finally, if you are staying in Saint Tropez this summer try not to miss out on a trip to Titamala, a boutique and a workshop at the very heart of Saint Tropez in rue Portail Neuf. Here you will find Titamala herself creating her unique pieces of jewelry in front of your very eyes. Even if you walk out empty handed, watching her work her magic is quite an experience and wholly recommended during a visit to Saint Tropez.
