Patrick Mavros opened the doors of his showroom, in the heart of the historic Sugar Estate of Beau Plan, next to l’Aventure du sucre Museum. The experience of the Atelier Patrick Mavros is a fascinating journey of crafts and curiosities. Specializing in the design and manufacture of jewelry and art objects for over 40 years, this family business has its roots in Africa.
Founded in Zimbabwe, Patrick Mavros has been manufacturing in Mauritius for 12 years.
With his London flagship store open more than a decade ago, and his shop in Nairobi, Patrick Mavros has, over the years, gained an international recognition.

Opened in a 160-year-old metal foundry, the concept is part space age laboratory and part medieval foundry!
Visitors are guided through a working jewelery workshop and invited to meet the formidable team of master craftsmen who create complex works of art inspired by nature.

“With the Atelier, we’ve created an interactive shopping experience where people can see behind the scenes and engage with us. For us- as artists and jewellery makers, the process is as beautiful as the pieces themselves, the life and soul of these pieces are born in the making of them.” Forbes Mavros.

Today, this unique story is deeply rooted in Mauritius, where Forbes and Kate Mavros continue to be inspired by the rich nature of Africa and its islands. Combining a complex know-how with an intrepid family heritage, Patrick Mavros has created some of the most extraordinary creations in Africa, jewelry and sculptures in sterling silver and 18-carat gold made by hand in his workshops in Zimbabwe and Mauritius. Visitors are invited to immerse themselves in the Wonderland of Mavros.
The Patrick Mavros showroom in Mauritius offers the quintessence of industrial chic, in a magical and daring environment where you discover innovative jewels. Each piece is designed by a family member and is unique.
