From December 1st 2022 to April 14th 2023

From the first traces of its use in the fifth millennium B.C.E., gold has fascinated and mesmerized civilizations the world over.  

By bringing art history, savoir-faire, and materials into dialogue, the exhibition resonates with the mission pursued by L’ÉCOLE, School of Jewelry Arts since its creation in 2012 with the support of Van Cleef & Arpels, that of promoting the many dimensions of the art of jewelry through courses, talks, workshops, exhibitions, publications, and research.

New Course Cycle

"The Modern Jewel 1960 - 1980"
First cycle on November 15th, 22th and 29th 

In this three-course cycle, whose chronological scope extends from the Swinging 60s to the technological era of the 1980s, you will explore the stylistic nuances that characterized the second half of the 20th century: from psychedelic curves to scientific rigor, from developments in plastic jewelry to the redefinition of traditional jewelry arts, from bodily emancipation to a renewed form of codification, you will take the measure of the profound social, technological, and aesthetic mutations that crystallized the modern jewel.
