  • The temple of watchmaking and jewellery
  • The opening of the Auberi flagship store in Cap 3000’s Corso heralds a new era for Ferret, the jeweller acquired in 2019 by Aubéry Audion.
La boutique met en lumière vingt-et-un univers des marques les plus prestigieuses, dont la maison Rolex et son espace personnalisé.

Everyone knows Ferret in the South of France, a jeweller and watchmaker that has been operating in Cap 3000 for 40 years and now has branches in Cannes, Nice and Monaco. Now, Aubéry Audion, Ferret’s Chairman, is inaugurating a 500m2 boutique with collections from major brand partners presented through 21 own universes, including Rolex in its personalised space. Watch brands include Breitling, Cartier, Chopard, Hublot, Longines, and others. The jeweller’s window displays jewels by Chaumet, Dinh Van, Messika, Pomellato, Repossi… along with Ferret’s own creations. “Creating this shop-in-shop signals a new shopping experience,” stresses its founder. “You can discover different universes in one place—display cabinets around a circular counter. This unique setting respects the Riviera codes we are attached to—Mediterranean luminosity, soft and mineral pebble shades, organic shapes, and azure colours—but makes each collection unique with a multitude of dedicated spaces. What’s more, the watchmaker André’s workshop is open to the boutique and has a made-to-measure and jewellery renovation service.” Just next door on the Corso, Aubéry Audion has also opened Nude, a women’s counter offering collections from 16 contemporary and more accessible jewellery brands such as Djula, Gigi Clozeau, Ginette NY, La Marquisette… -
