“The great thing about this school is how it provides students with the perspectives of genuine professionals. When you love what you do, you want to share it with other people. L’Ecole helps me stay sharp, by forcing me to ask myself beginner’s questions all the time. It is constantly reminding me why I love my job.”

Thank you for letting us into the beautiful and elegant world of L’Ecole Van Cleef & Arpels. I have taken many courses in the field, but this program has a charm and character unlike any other

Marilyn C. – New York

Heaven on earth! I have no other words for the experience.

Constance M. – New York

Even though I already knew quite a lot about diamonds, I learnt so much from this class. In my opinion what differentiates a good teacher from a great teacher is how well he/she can transmit his/her passion to the students and my teacher definitively transmitted his passion about diamonds to us.
