The genesis of APM Monaco traces back to the picturesque setting of Monaco, Monte-Carlo, in 1982. Founded by Ariane Prette, the brand’s origins are steeped in a rich line of craftsmanship. Renowned for their expertise in working with gold, diamonds, and other precious gemstones, the Prette family earned acclaim as key manufacturers for jewelers worldwide.

Her son, CEO Philippe Prette, envisioned reimagining modern aesthetic value, fueled by decades of passion and expertise in the jewelry industry. Teaming up with his wife, Creative Director Kika Prette, APM Monaco was born. Today, APM Monaco shines as a leader in silver jewelry innovation, mesmerizing audiences with its exceptional designs.

Yet, Philippe isn’t just your average CEO—he’s a force to be reckoned with on the racetrack as well. With an impressive track record spanning 96 professional competitions since 2005, including victories in the Ferrari Challenge Asia-Pacific in 2017 and 2018, Philippe brings a winning spirit and a passion for performance to everything he touches.
