Discover the secrets of the jewelry world
Founded in 2012, L'ÉCOLE, School of Jewelry Arts is the first school to welcome the general public into the jewelry arts. The school was created thanks to the support of Van Cleef & Arpels. L'ÉCOLE is located on Place Vendôme, where the spirit of jewelry is in the air, in an 18th-century mansion which embodies the French artistic tradition. The international vocation of the school leads it to travel all around the world to share jewelry knowledge, where it meets an ever increasingly diverse audience. The school's entrance is located at 31 rue Danielle Casanova in Paris.
A showcase of exceptional gemstones and precious objects
L’ÉCOLE also encourages the appreciation of jewelry through exhibitions that are free and open to the public. By collaborating with collectors and contemporary artists, these exhibitions offer a rare opportunity to see private and exceptional works that highlight the many facets of the jewelry arts. Guided tours will be available in French and English, during opening hours and with pre-registration.Discover
