New York—New York City-based Nouvel Heritage designer Camille Parruitte hasn’t been home to Paris since the pandemic began. Fittingly, her latest pieces are a love letter to the City of Light, where her collection is produced. Parruitte, who launched Nouvel Heritage in 2015, hails from a jewelry manufacturing family, responsible for crafting the styles designed by some of the world’s most iconic fine jewelry brands. Parruitte produces Nouvel Heritage at the family workshop, typically commuting between New York and Paris as needed. 

 In time for the holidays, Parruitte has added a number of diamond iterations to her signature cuff, the “Mood Bangle,” which uses a gold bar to connect either side, easy for one to put on or remove on their own. Included in the new editions of the popular style is a version that can be personalized with initials. Also among the newness are two chain bracelets, with a single bezel-set diamond, or available with initials, and two new medallions, inspired by Versailles and the Eiffel Tower.

“This gives me a window on where I’m from,” she said. “Even as a native Parisian, I am always impressed by the Eiffel Tower when I see it from up close.” Parruitte’s family hasn’t only been monitoring Nouvel Heritage production at the workshop while the designer has been quarantined stateside, but also had a hand in a very special, and personal, project this year.
