As the great-great grandson of iconic jeweler Louis Cartier, Jean Dousset was born with an impeccable taste for rare gems, craftsmanship, and artistry.
In 1992, his own legacy began at the global epicenter of high jewelry: Place Vendôme in Paris, where he earned a prestigious position with Chaumet, the official jeweler of the Emperor Napoleon. He then worked at luxury jewelers Boucheron and Van Cleef & Arpels before going off on his own in Los Angeles.
The birth of Louis Cartier ushered in a new and revolutionary era in the history of luxury jewelry.
Jean Dousset was born into the famed house of Louis Cartier in Paris, France. The great-great grandson of iconic jeweler Louis Cartier, Dousset inherited the same impeccable taste for fine gems, craftsmanship and artistry.
He began his jewelry career at the iconic Place Vendôme in Paris, where he earned a prestigious position with Chaumet, the official jeweler of the Emperor Napoleon.
He then pursued an apprenticeship with the renowned French jewelry designer Boucheron. He worked directly for and was mentored by Alain Boucheron, the last family descendant to direct the jewelry house.
Dousset then made a pivotal move in his career and joined the revered jewelry house Van Cleef & Arpels as the International Director of High Jewelry sales.
Inspired to write the next chapter in his family’s legacy, Dousset debuted his “Atelier” Jean Dousset Diamonds in Los Angeles as homage to a period when the word “luxury” meant quality, dedication and service.
Jean Dousset entered the celebrity engagement ring space when he custom designed leading actress Eva Longoria’s ring Haley. He would then go on to design many more celebrity engagement rings, like Amy Adams, Morgan Stewart, and more.
After a decade mastering the craft of luxury jewelry, Jean Dousset launched a new collection, Oui, to make the brand accessible to a wider clientele.
Dousset recognized couples were increasingly interested in lab diamonds for their engagement rings but were faced with options that were impersonal or poor quality. He went on to launch Oui with lab grown diamonds in 2021.
Oui by Jean Dousset was created to empower clients to ‘just say Oui’ with the freedom to choose what matters to you.

Carat weight represents the weight of your diamond center stone. Visit our blog post to learn more about the 4Cs of diamonds.
We have strict criteria for diamond selection. Every lab grown diamond center stone we source for our Oui engagement rings is hand-selected and GIA graded.
Our mission at Oui is to merge outstanding craftsmanship with ideas that put you first—so our pricing reflects an inclusive cost for both a lab grown diamond and its ring setting to simplify your experience.
GIA’s color-grading scale for diamonds is the industry standard. The scale begins with the letter D, representing colorless, and continues with increasing presence of color to the letter Z. Visit our blog post to learn more about the 4Cs of diamonds.
Our lab grown diamond center stones are exclusively colorless to nearly colorless (D-H color on GIA's color-grading scale).
The cut of a diamond is what delivers its light and brilliance. The GIA evaluates a diamond's brightness, fire, scintillation, weight ratio, durability, polish, and symmetry to arrive at a diamond's cut grade. Visit our blog post to learn more about the 4Cs of diamonds.
Our lab grown diamonds are 'Excellent' cut, the highest cut grading a diamond can receive, and exclusively GIA-certified.
All of our sample videos closely match the diamond it represents in color, shape, size, and scale.
Each diamond comes with a unique GIA Certificate. You can click the GIA Certificate link to view the exact specifications and grading of the stone you are viewing.
All of our diamonds are carefully curated within strict aesthetic parameters to ensure that our stones have identical shapes and facets from one diamond to the next.
Every diamond is unique and we hand-select only the most desirable stones. Clarity refers to the absence of inclusions and blemishes in a diamond. Visit our blog post to learn more about the 4Cs of diamonds.
In our diamond feed, we exclusively offer GIA graded VS+ lab grown diamonds.
Total carat weight represents the total weight of all the diamonds set within the ring.
Diamond weights are approximate and will range slightly based on your ring size and/or the unique cut and shape of your specific eternity band. We strive to match each stone perfectly.
Total carat weight represents the weight of the (2*) center stones plus the total diamond pavé used within the design.
Diamond pavé weights are approximate and will range slightly based on your ring size and/or the unique cut and shape of your specific center stone.
Each center stone diamond selected for our earrings is unique and hand cut. In order to meet our highest standards of diamond curation, you may receive a center stone diamond that carries a little extra carat weight. Center stones may fluctuate up to .05 carats more. Any fluctuations will always be ABOVE your selected carat weight, never under. For example, if you select .70 carats for your center stone, your stone will be anywhere between .70 to .75 carats.
*all earrings (unless specified) come in a set of two
