ORO VIVO is the first fully integrated chain of jewellery and watch stores that designs, manufactures and distributes its collections. The company concentrated its activities for the first 18 years in the mid-market sector, gradually expanding and concentrating its current network of 150 stores in four European countries: Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and Germany.
On May 1st, 2005, ORO VIVO was acquired by the Christian Bernard Group ( www.christianbernardgroup.com), as a result ORO VIVO moved into the luxury sector.
Driven by its founder and President Bernard Nguyen’s creative spirit and his constant pursuit of innovation, the Christian Bernard Group continued to evolve within a tradition of beauty and perfection.
By progressively integrating different crafts and expertise over the years, the Christian Bernard Group (founded in 1973) has established a unique business. Unique for having mastered design processes and also comprising manufacturing capabilities, for its experience in both generic and licensed products; and for its strong distribution network and acquisition of a chain of retail outlets. Today, the Group is known as a key player in the international jewellery industry.
With continued growth for over 30 years, the history of Christian Bernard is a true success story.
Since May 2005, ORO VIVO has considerably expanded its range to include exclusive and innovative collections as well as products featuring the most elegant, symbolic designs. It tantalizes customers with a modern shopping experience set in a warm and welcoming environment. The operational management is handled by Stefan Hauptmann and the general direction by Damien Verrier. Thanks to the Group’s synergies, ORO VIVO is entering a new phase of its development which will lead to the opening of more than 150 boutiques by 2012.
