Instructors

The teaching staff at L'Ecole, the School of Jewelry Arts is made up of 30 instructors: jewelers, art historians, experts, gemologists, historians of time and watchmakers. Although each of them deals with their own specific field of expertise, they are united by the desire to share their knowledge through experimentation and dialogue. They include:

The jewelers

“Mains d’Or” of Van Cleef & Arpels’ High Jewelry workshop, they total more than 100 years of professional experience. At the highest rank in their profession, they initiate each participant into the jewelers’gestures.

The art historians

Graduates of programs such as L’Ecole du Louvre (Paris), or Princeton University (USA), their experience, enthusiasm, understanding of jewelry, their passion for sharing and transmission: have made it their destiny to incarnate L’École’s teaching.

The gemologists

Stone buyers, with dual training in gemology and geology: they have a uniquely deep and broad understanding of precious gemstones, which has inspired them to teach in order to share their passion.

The mock-up artists and designers

Graduates of the prestigious Ecole Boulle, these artists guide students through the first stages of creation.

The watchmakers

The most famous watchmaking schools in Switzerland have prepared these professors to know how to reveal to their students the secrets of the mechanical watch movement.
