Coming from the world of contemporary art, I create pieces of fine jewelry made by Place Vendôme workshops. Originally from Guinea Conakry by my father and Guadeloupe by my mother, I pay tribute to African art via Art Deco and to the lush flora of the islands.

Born in Paris, coming from an ancient imperial family of West Africa on father’s side, the imperial family of Wagadu Ghana, Sandra Bérété has a strong predilection for Africa and its art, also a fascination for voluminous jewelry, glowing colors, and luxuriant flora.
Coming from the contemporary art world, Princess Sandra expresses herself through jewelry which she is using as an artistic medium while integrating in a rigorous way the codes of Western high-end jewelry.
Her vocation was revealed when she met the jewelry Master Henry Gargat, a closed friend of Jean Dinh Van, who notably used to work for Boucheron. This alchemist also was a genius creator of automat music boxes. Encouraged by the Master, the designer convinced a Parisian creation studio, working at this time for Tiffany’s and Baccarat and only training students from the prestigious Ecole Boulle of applied arts, to teach her the different rough and sketch techniques used for luxury jewelry while completing her training at the Institute of gemmology in Paris.
