Céleste Mogador brand was created in 2016 by Pascale Nivet-Bernetière. The brand is named after Celeste Mogador, a famous French can-can dancer of the 19th century. This spectacular and eccentric woman began her career as a dancer and became a noble countess who inspired Georges Bizet to create the opera Carmen (they say that he wrote the main character from Celeste.) She continues to excite hearts to this day and is a source of inspiration for Pascale Nivet-Bernetière. All Céleste Mogador jewelry is handmade in a workshop in Paris.
