    This is my favourite Orena Paris set. I purchased these vintage, unworn, Mint condition pieces in Calgary at an antique store. How it came to be here in this city is unknown — to both the previous owner and, therefore, of course, me. All pieces are marked.

    Orena was a French Jewellery Company, located in France, that manufactured high quality costume jewellery under the brand name “Orena Paris.” It existed from 1977 to 2005. The entire making process was hand done — including assembling, polishing. The jewellers of Orena used gold and silver tone alloy, often textured. When enamels were used, they were usually the colour of the French flag — red, blue, white. But pieces with green, purple and black enamel do exist. The company also used rhinestones, art glass and crystals in the manufacture of jewellery. (Info from: and other sources.)

    Choker Necklace: 17 1/2” in length
    Bracelet: 7 1/2” in length
    Earrings: 3/4” x 1 1/2”

      Elegant, sophisticated, beautiful set. Just a fabulous find. Never heard of this company but would love to see more of their work.

      They say “Paris is fashion” kidding!
      This is a stunning work of art!
      And not a scratch, someone took very good care of this amazing set. Glad it fell into the right hands Leanne, as you are definitely one who appreciates “fine jewelry”!

      Newfld — It’s a rather cool find. I certainly am not usually this lucky. Not at all. Thank you.

      Broochman — I am pleased that you like it. You have amazing things. Thank you.

      plein-air-painter — It was all neatly boxed on fluffy jewellers cotton. It just sort of said “Look At Me” as I walked by the glass counter. I had never heard of the company, either, prior to seeing this set. Thank you.

      Eileen — Thank you. Now, looking at this jewellery through the “new eyes” you have given me, I am nodding my head, saying, “Yes, It does look Paris Sophisticate.” If we’re thinking “The Devil Wears Prada” Paris, I can certainly see Meryl Streep wearing it; Emily Bloom, yes; Anne Hathaway — maybe. Smiles. You are always so kind. Thanks.
