Jules Wièse is a French goldsmith and jeweler of German origin (Berlin 1818 – Paris 1890). Trained in Berlin with J. G. Hossauer, supplier to the King of Prussia, he settled in Paris and worked for the famous goldsmith and jeweler François-Désiré Froment-Meurice. He was awarded the « first class » medal in silversmithing, jewelery and jewelery at the Universal Exhibition in Paris in 1855, then established his reputation at the Universal Exhibition in London in 1862.
Jules Wièse established himself as one of the masters of artistic jewelery by remaining faithful to the aesthetics of romantic jewellery, the ornamental repertoire of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance remaining his favorite source of inspiration until the 1860s.
