FIRST FORUM ESTABLISHED TO INTRODUCE THE GENERAL PUBLIC TO THE WORLD OF JEWELRY, L'ÉCOLE, SCHOOL OF JEWELRY ARTS REOPENS ITS DOORS IN SEPTEMBER!

Created by the initiative of Van Cleef & Arpels, L'ÉCOLE offers introductory and experimentation courses à la carte, in France and abroad, focusing on unlocking the secrets of the world of jewelry. L'ÉCOLE offers an exclusive program, revolving around three main themes: savoir-faire, history of jewelry, and the universe of gemstones. To celebrate the start of the school year, we offer a rich and exclusive program: courses at the preferential price of 50 € each from September 14th to November 27th. L’ÉCOLE, feeling concerned about young people dropping out of school, has decided to donate the totality of the funds collected through the registrations of our students during this period to a charity working for the educational support of young people.

About L'ÉCOLE in Paris

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.

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.
