Lessons in Excellency: L’École Van Cleef & Arpels opens in Paris

As also announced by Wallpaper* magazine: “Today, Van Cleef & Arpels’ school of jewellery – L’École Van Cleef & Arpels – opens its gilded doors for the very first time. Aimed at makers, connoisseurs and those just simply keen to get an ‘intellectual and emotional grasp of the soul of jewellery through personal experience’, the school will uncover the notoriously secretive world of fine-jewellery via a non-technical curriculum of classes, which will be taught in English as well as French.” Chouette !! As Caragh McKay explains: “Marie Vallanet-Delhom, the first President of the new École Van Cleef & Arpels, is one of the most prominent figures in the French watch and jewellery industry, and will share her 25-year knowledge of the great French jewellery maisons at the school. Here she talks as through the concept and curriculum.” To view, kindly click HERE.

Lessons in Excellency at Van Clef & Arpels: The gemsetter constantly refers to the gouaché so that he or she can select the right stones for a piece. The combination of different shaped and sized gems adds a sense of movement. Image via Wallpaper*.
