Bijoux De Mer Opens at City Market Bayside Upscale, Fine Jewelry Gallery is the First to Open in New Retail Development Destin, Fla. (February 13, 2017) – Bijoux De Mer, an upscale, fine jewelry boutique, recently announced their opening in the new Destin based, retail development, City Market Bayside. Owner and Designer, Renee Launiere, held the shop’s initial grand opening on December 21, 2016 and is officially the first shop open for business within the center. Bijoux de Mer, the first addition to City Market Bayside, a 32,000-square foot lifestyle center located at 4495 Furling Lane in Destin, features exquisite fine jewelry, with an edge. Owner and Jewelry Designer, Renee Launiere, derives her creative inspiration from memories of summers spent at the beach, as well as international travel throughout her life. Bijoux De Mer, meaning “jewels of the sea” in French, is a fitting name for her fine jewelry line, as well as the boutique. Working primarily with pearls, Renee loves to push the boundaries of conventional pearl designs. Her jewelry can be described as bold, edgy and innovative; yet remains elegant and timeless. Every piece of jewelry found at Bijoux De Mer is hand-crafted and designed exclusively by Launiere. She expertly selects the finest materials for her designs, typically starting with cultured Tahitian, South Sea, or funky baroque freshwater pearls and incorporating rare, exotic gemstones set in precious metals. Over the last several years, Renee studied metal-smithing and jewelry design at Atlanta’s Spruill Center for the Arts. She also received her certification in pearl grading from the GIA (Gemological Institute of America). In contrast, most of her professional career was spent in the fast-paced pharmaceutical industry, climbing the corporate ladder in sales and marketing. After 15 years, Renee made the bold move to leave behind the corporate world and fully embrace her creative desires of designing jewelry. It was a brave move, and the courage of that decision is reflected in her distinctive, bold designs. The true beauty of Launiere’s fine jewelry is captured in the quality and uniqueness of each item that creatively combines elegance with fashion forward edge. Bijoux De Mer, the Launiere’s branded collection, was launched in the summer of 2006, and is available in over 60 fine jewelry stores, galleries, and upscale boutiques within the U.S. and internationally. Now, with over 11 years as an established, luxury brand on the international and national scene, Bijoux De Mer can now be seen in her first gallery in Destin. Launiere has moved corporate headquarters and her design studio to Destin from Atlanta, GA. Launiere will offer personal design consultation, which will include jewelry styling and custom creations for clients. Bijoux De Mer offers upscale, fine jewelry with a fashion forward edge. “We are thrilled to have our flagship gallery open for business on the Emerald Coast,” says Renee Launiere, Owner & Jewelry Designer. “We are excited to be part of this amazing community and look forward to offering unique, one-of-a-kind jewelry to all of our clients; visitors and locals alike.” To learn more about Bijoux De Mer Fine Jewelry, visit BijouxDeMer.com or find them on Facebook at Bijoux De Mer Fine Jewelry.
