"VOICE OF JEWELS", available on all platforms.

Discover the podcasts of L'École, School of Jewelry Arts, which reveal the fascinating stories and secret lore of jewelry from around the world.

Jewels are everywhere. We admire them in the windows of master jewelers, and in the collections of the world's greatest museums.

Young lovers, movie stars, and heads of state each have their treasures: objects of desire, fascinating ornaments, or symbols of power. But every piece of jewelry also holds its secrets. Secrets of fabrication… but also… relationships. Stories of love and separation. Myth and curses. Moments of glory or downfalls. The height of an empire or civilization, the spark of a revolution.
