MON PARADIS

My Paradise

Jet d’Eau is one of Geneva’s best-known attractions. With the St. Pierre Cathedral in the foreground, the iconic fountain was connected to the lakeshore only by a narrow pier built at the end of the 19th century. Because of this, in 2013 a project was initiated for a more attractive promenade access.


Functional as a moveable jetty, the new bridge facilitates the flow of small boats going to and from the Geneva yacht marina while allowing pedestrians to cross at the same time. Mon Paradis is characterized by the optimism of Lac de Genève, which houses the Jet d’Eau fountain.

A blue diamond encapsulates the hue of the fountain which operates all year round except during frosty weather. An asscher was selected to reflect the tranquility of the lake in winter and to emphasize the flawless transparency of the blue diamond. Hugging the centerpiece is a complementing rose gold band of round brilliants defining water droplets, almost as if splashed from Jet d’Eau.


Two symmetrical arches encrusted with princess cut diamonds set invisible-style, represent the crystal clear waters of the fountain glistening under the sun. An attention-grabbing trio of marquise cut diamond columns links the top and lower contours of the ring.

The design of the bridge which links to Jet d’Eau features stainless-steel scissor elements produced using digital cutting techniques. It plays an important role in the architecture of Mon Paradis, since the profile of the ring utilizes aspects of the “V-shaped” bridge. From the top view of Mon Paradis, a prominent division of the two rounded structures is noticed.


The combination of rarity and creativity makes this a true objet d’art that is meant to present a distinctly cruise-like vibe – even the panoramic vista of Monaco can’t trump.
