A. de Fussigny: where cognac meets jewelry

Forging a link between the world of premium cognac and that of fine jewelry was the idea behind A. de Fussigny’s latest project: a limited-edition signet ring celebrating—and enclosing—its 1970 Petite Champagne.

“We believe that the combination of cognac and fine jewelry makes for a rather refined blend,” A. de Fussigny president Thomas Gonon explains to Luxe Packaging Insight. To celebrate the launch of its 1970 millésime, the independent cognac house called on Bordeaux-based jewelers Arvin and gem setter Carl Jolibert to collaborate on a limited-edition jewel, Arvin for A. de Fussigny, of which only 10 will be made. The centerpiece of the ring—an 8-millimeter glass bead, contains precious drops of the Petite Champagne cognac. “Arvin conceived a system of encapsulation for wines and spirits that uses a technique similar to that of extracting wine from the bottle without having to open it,” explains Gonon. The bead is then mounted onto an 18-carat gold signet ring. 

The ring can be personalized through engraving and its color and shape can also be customized, according to A. de Fussigny. The signet ring comes with a bottle of the 50-year-old cognac nestled in an orange—the brand’s signature color—lacquered coffret (Upside Creative Solutions). Just 251 of the numbered coffrets have been produced.

While the brand’s XO and Supérieur cognacs currently come in bottles from Saverglass, the latter vintage is soon to be replaced by a model from glassmaker Bruni.
