Experiencing craftsmanship and discovering how to create a high jewelry masterpiece. This class is conducted by a jeweler and a stone-setter – both with many years’ experience in Van Cleef & Arpels’ workshops – along with an instructor.
There is so much to discover about the creation of an iconic jewel. Above and beyond the value of the precious metal and the gemstones which go into the jewel, there is a summit of achievement reached together by all those who practice the savoir-faire of jewelry making. You will try out the jewelers’ gestures hands-on, and thus experience for yourself all the richness of these artistic professions, guided personally by the Master Jewelers.
"Stone setting is the crossroads of jewelry making, where stone cutting and metal work are brought together in perfect harmony. In this class, I show you techniques that it has taken me years to acquire. It is very condensed, but I still want you to get a genuine feel for the various gestures and how we use our tools. "
