There is so much to discover about the creation of an iconic jewel. Above and beyond the value of the precious metal and the gemstones which go into the jewel, there is a summit of achievement reached together by all those who practice the savoir-faire of jewelry making.
You will try out the jewelers’ gestures hands-on, and thus experience for yourself all the richness of these artistic professions, guided personally by the Master Jewelers.
从各种灵感源泉开始，您会跟珠宝设计专家导师一起沿着三个工序，了解珠宝的制作过程：素描、描摹和水彩画。然后，逐步制作白镴模型，这是首次以三维立体形式呈现珠宝的工序。从第一笔的素描到再现实物，Van Cleef & Arpels梵克雅宝学院将带您探索珠宝制作的所有方面。
Prerequisite: having taken the course "The Lapidary Art 1 - Discovery: history and gestures", to register for the course "The Lapidary Art 2".
Discover the history of stone cutting and the principal techniques of the Lapidary. This course is taught by a lapidary and a gemologist. You will discover the history, the geography, the vocabulary and the tools used to cut and polish colored stones. You will understand also how the Lapidary studies a rough stone in order to decide the best way to cut it, to obtain the very best color, while also retaining the best weight of the stone. Finally, you will proceed to the first steps for cutting: you will use the cutting machine and you will execute lapidary techniques. You will leave with your pre-formed or “bruted” stone. Duration : 3h

Cutting your own stone. Applying the techniques you learned during the course « The Lapidary’s Art 1 ». This course is taught by a lapidary and a gemologist.
You will first become acquainted with the major principles of cutting and the importance of proportions. Then you will cut your own stone until completion. Step by step, you will make the facets and polish them using the lapidary’s cutting and polishing machine. At the end of this course, you will leave with the fruit of your labor: your facetted stone.
Immerse yourself into two magnificent arts and crafts traditions. 这个课程由一位日本漆艺导师和一位珠宝师授课——两人在Van Cleef & Arpels梵克雅宝工坊拥有多年的丰富经验。此外还有一位导师参与教学。
Two traditions, two Arts, two types of Savoir-Faire: French Jewelry and Japanese Urushi Lacquer. "Mains d’Or" (Golden Hands) from the High Jewelry Workshops of the Maison Van Cleef & Arpels and a Master of Urushi Laqueur initiate you into the secrets of their Art.
Seated at the jeweler’s bench, you work both with metal and with inlaid vegetable ivory, to create motifs on a butterfly jewel’s wings. In the lacquer workshop, using tools and materials from far away, you create your lacquered butterfly, praticing three of the lacquer master’s ancestral techniques: placing colors, Maki-e, and mosaics in mother of pearl.
Discover the subtlety of applying the enameling art to a jewel
Enamel has existed since the invention of glass in ancient times. Accompanied by a Master Enameler, you will practice engraving the metal, crushing the enamel’s ingredients and then creating your own butterfly in champlevé and in plique à jour enamel. Cooking your enamel work at very high temperature in the specialized oven will show you how and why this is called : « the art of ‘grand feu’ », because it is the fire, omnipresent in the enameler’s work, which fuses and transforms the material in order to reveal the color.
In jewelry, creation is the result of a team effort, for which the design is the first step. The gouaché is a technically detailed rendering which will guide all the different « hands » who will participate in thecreation of the jewel. The mockup maker, the jewelers, the gemologists, the polishers, the setters: all will refer back to it during every single stage. The gouaché prefigures the jewel, both in volume and in color. The jewel is a 3 dimensional object in volume, for which the design is flat, 2 dimensional. In this course, you will learn how to master showing these volumes for a white gold jewel, and how to create a subtle play of lights and shadows, using your gouache paint and brushes.
