Step into the vibrant era of the 1970s, where the night sky comes alive with the mesmerising brilliance of precious jewels.

From the heart of New York City to the fashion capital of Paris, the nightlife world breaks free from conventions, reinventing fashion and revolutionising genres. It is a time of unbridled creativity, where Studio 54, the Mudd Club, the Palace, and Chez Régine turn the scene upside down. In those cities, electric energy permeates the air, creating an atmosphere as an ode to self-expression. 

Valérie Messika, the visionary behind Messika High Jewellery, has drawn inspiration from the unwavering energy of the seventies’ craziest nights. With her 10th High Jewellery collection, Midnight Sun, she captures the essence of those legendary nights. In this collection, anything goes. You can be whoever you want, let yourself go, and embrace your most authentic self without fear. 

Valérie Messika has chosen the face of the new Messika High Jewellery collection: the captivating French singer and model Carla Bruni to bring this euphoric collection to life. With her grace, magnetism, and undeniable fashion icon status, Carla Bruni revives the resolutely subversive spirit of the 1970s. Her ardent femininity and captivating presence infuse the collection with pulsating energy, causing the diamonds to dance until the break of dawn. 

Midnight Sun is a manifesto of creativity and self-affirmation. Each jewel in this collection reveals multifaceted sets that play with lights and contrasts, proving the Maison’s unparalleled diamond savoir-faire. Among this collection’s treasures, the yellow diamond reigns as the queen of the night. Amplified in its radiant splendour, it illuminates the darkness with a mystical, symbolic aura. This time, at Messika, the yellow diamond takes centre stage, eclipsing the traditional white diamond and taking Carla Bruni on a captivating journey through time, blurring the boundaries between night and day. 

Let us dive deeper into the enchanting world of Midnight Sun. Valérie Messika has woven a symphony of exceptional sets, each one more vibrant than the next. In each creation, she captures the essence of iconic figures who shaped the seventies, from the soulful diva Diana Ross to the eclectic theatrical performer Andy Warhol. Among the remarkable sets, a few will undoubtedly captivate your heart. 


No other era can match the uninhibited spirit of the 1970s. It continues to cast a spell of fascination upon us. Picture yourself on fiery dance floors, surrounded by an eclectic fusion of styles and the blossoming of multiple fashion and music icons. Among them, two luminous stars shine the brightest: Liza Minnelli and Diana Ross. Liza is a warm and glamorous diva, and Diana is a renowned eclectic performer.

Valérie Messika, in her Ultimate Party set, draws inspiration from these two iconic women who left an indelible mark on the history of the seventies. Through contrasting duos of exceptional coloured diamonds, she creates a masterpiece necklace that pays homage to their crystalline and masterful voices.

Picture a 20.04-carat pear-cut yellow diamond and a 9.07-carat cushion-cut diamond gracefully adorning this symbolic necklace. In her brilliance, the Founder continues to deepen the symbolism of the Golden Shield, a protective armour she had imagined in a yellow-gold version during her previous High Jewellery collection.

The Ultimate Party set embraces contradictions, intertwining the sparkle of white gold with the vibrant allure of coloured diamonds. The necklace, a powerful embodiment of artistry, features a perfectly curved gold plastron with a mirrored effect, enhancing the diamonds’ light-refracting capabilities. The ends of this stunning jewel are adorned with delicately set diamonds, accentuating the centre stones’ spectacular brilliance. To complete this dazzling ensemble, a bracelet and a matching ring accompany the necklace, infusing your being with the vibrant vitality of this remarkable collection. And how can we forget the showstopper? A second choker, enhanced with a breathtaking 18.05-carat yellow solitaire, serves as the pièce de résistance. 


If there is one thing that Messika knows how to do, it is celebrating the brilliance of diamonds. And now, for the first time, the Maison unveils a creation that harnesses the traditional snow setting to illuminate 15 cushion-cut yellow diamonds ranging from 2 to 15 carats. Prepare to be dazzled as these precious gems adorn the body, sparkling like a radiant dance floor. 

The yellow diamond retakes centre stage, captivating all eyes with its golden allure. Each square of the necklace, earrings, ring, and lip jewel has been meticulously proportioned to perfectly highlight the size and brilliance of these exquisite yellow diamonds. Expert craftsmanship brings these jewels as close to your skin as possible, allowing their radiant beauty to enhance your every movement.

In the dazzling playground of New York City during the seventies, one needed a daring personality to stand out from the crowd. With the Fiery set, Valérie Messika envisions a necklace that embodies the spirit of those bold individuals who fearlessly embraced their true selves. The pointed contours of the jewel serve as an added confidence booster, empowering you to shine your brightest.

But the enchantment does not stop there.

Additionally, three resplendent High Jewellery creations repeat the crescent moon motif at the necklace’s centre.

Messika Dancing Moon is a tribute to the night sky, where white gold disappears, and the precious white diamonds are magically laid directly on your skin, illuminating your every move. 


The heart, a timeless symbol of love, beats not only for romance but also for life itself. Valérie Messika, a firm believer in the heart’s multifaceted symbolism, has created Joy Coeur, a High Jewellery set that embodies love, joy, and the spirit of celebration in all its splendid glory. These heart-shaped diamonds are anything but ordinary; they represent the essence of self-love, a breath of freedom that recalls the spirit of the seventies.

Crafting the perfect heart shape is a challenge that requires the utmost precision and mastery of High Jewellery craftsmanship. Valérie Messika rises to this challenge, giving each heart present on the necklace perfectly balanced proportions and adjusting its halos of light with meticulous care. But the pièce de résistance within the Joy Coeur set lies in its masterpiece ring—an extraordinary Toi & Moi composition featuring a 16.18-carat yellow diamond and a captivating 7.06-carat heart-shaped diamond. When worn, these two diamonds float effortlessly on your finger, a signature touch only Valérie Messika’s demanding craftsmanship can achieve.
