Daydream. Feel. Breathe in. Dream again... There you are: a haven of peace, filled with happy memories, so light and yet so heavy with history and emotion. You are at home, but you are elsewhere. Open wide your eyes: H. Gringoire has designed an exceptional setting just for you. It's a comfortable world, but here you can dare to take risks. Dare. Yes, dare! Click and flit from diamonds to gemstones, from timeless gold to bold metals. You are in your living room, lost in memories; you dream... You are at H. Gringoire. You are you.
In the times of Rimbaud, Achille Hourdequin decided to create a business. It was in 1880, to be exact. The House of Hourdequin was thus founded in the family home at the now legendary address of 79 rue de Turbigo in Paris.
For the House, high-quality service to customers was key to business development and has remained a guiding principle throughout the company's history.
After the sudden death of the founder in 1942, Gérard Gringoire, his son-in-law, took charge of the House with the assistance of Edith Hourdequin. The sales team was expanded to cover almost all of France. The Hourdequin-Gringoire duo continued developing the company, which now has an international scope.
After more than 135 years of company existence, some five hundred jewelers in France currently place their confidence in us by distributing the H. Gringoire brand. We are also present in Southeast Asia, the Middle East and the United States.
