Such is the company's history. On a commission, dating on 10 October 1613, from the King's council, the regent of Marie de Medicis decided to protect her inhabitants of three villages in Lombardy "for services rendered" and awarded an exceptional privilege to conduct business in Paris and around the whole country not undergoing the administrative restrictions. The decree was recognized by subsequent kings, and the families including the Mellerio family from the villages of the Vigezzo valley became privileged citizens within the realm. The legend says that such privilege was given them as a result of the conspiracy to assassinate the King Louis XIII. A young chimneysweep from a small village of the Vigezzo valley, while coming down a flue, heard about the conspiracy and told his master word for word, and the master, in his turn, informed the three Consuls of the Lombardy Community in which the Mellerio dits Meller company also was.

In spite of the fact that members of the Mellerio family began occupying with the jewelry business from the 17th century, but only in the 18th century their brand was well-known within élite of France. The forerunner of the company’s popularity was Jean-Marie Mellerio's ninth child Jean-Baptiste who, at the age of fifteen years, settled at 20, rue Vivienne in 1796 and was under the patronage of Empress Josephine. Another descendant of the family, François Mellerio, became a founder of the present Mellerio dits Meller jewelry house and opened his first shop at the street named rue de la Paix that is now considered to be a symbol of French luxury.
