MID = inside / the heart

GARD = protection / blessing

MID + GARD = protection of our interconnected Sacred Hearts.

Midgard was, in some ancient monuments of writing, the name divinely given to our very planet.

Midgard Paris’ Atelier is located in the French capital within its most spiritual district, Montmartre, beside the Sacré-Coeur or Sacred Heart Basilica.

We manufacture locally in every market we serve, with Paris as our base and everlasting source of inspiration.

Minerals & Their Healing Properties

We are dedicated to ethical holistic sourcing. All the natural and semi-precious stones that embellish our jewellery have been specially selected from all around the world for their medicinal, psychological and physical healing properties.

Our reverence for the minerals we chose comes from years of research into lithotherapy – the use of stones’ magnetic fields.

“It became obvious to me that stones are able to “speak” when as a child when I was seized by the cold autumn weather, and was attracted to a light grey pebble that I took in my hands, and suddenly discovered a sensation of warmth that enveloped me.”       – MP

Ethic & Tradition

In addition to our ethical sourcing, Midgard Paris is proud to measure a low carbon footprint, derived from its chosen niche – lost wax casting.

This ancestral casting technique, is a zero-waste process proudly preserved and developed by Midgard Paris.

We take the additional step of producing locally in each market we serve to maximize our positive impact. We work in collaboration with local artisans across the world trained in the specialized art of wax casting. Our collection’s prices are material-based, fair, and are not affected by transport of raw materials and customs.

In this passionate process, experience is transformed into tradition, so that future generations can connect to the past while remaining firmly grounded in the present moment.

Crafts & Innovation

“I have always been inspired by the ancestral technique of wax casting, with the wild and unbridled beauty of the process itself.”     – MP

Our jewelry is artisanally made in small production batches or bespoke. Each piece is crafted and polished by hand, then finely plated in silver, gold. Hand-knitted metal chain is used to create the innovative and unexpected fashion sense our customers have come to recognize.

“My first collection, “Sonia,” named in honor of my first master, the recognized icon of knitwear, Madame Sonia Rykiel. The Queen of Knits herself never so much as held knitting needles, herself… and neither had I at that point…” – MP

who’s stopping us from inventing one?” 

The Designer

‏‏During her 7 years spent at Sonia Rykiel Paris and 7 further years at Maison Martin Margiela, Marina was able to immerse herself in the world of fashion and sharpen her artistic sensibility.

“My first artistic trials were carried out in Maison Martin Margiela’s artisinal workshop known as “Line Zero”, repurposing everyday objects collected by Mr. Margiela over the years. These jewellery designs found their home in the private collections of Paris’ fashion elites.” – MP

These two places Black House and White House, (by irony of fate or destiny) contributed to build Midgard Paris’ identity.

Midgard Paris invites you to discover a new world:

That of a refined healing jewel weaving a link between yourself and boundless energy through lithotherapy and magnificent art.
