Don’t Miss The L’Ecole School Of Jewelry Arts In NYC

ART + CULTURE | BY | October 26, 2018

L’Ecole School of Jewelry Arts has returned to New York at the Academy Mansion on the Upper East Side.

Founded in 2012, with the support of Van Cleef & Arpels, the school offers programs and exhibits that provide insight into the art of jewelry design, and has showcased timeless pieces including Van Cleef & Arpels’ Ruban bracelet and Noble Hunt Vanity and Cigarette Case (shown in photos).

L’Ecole President Marie Vallent-Delhom explains, “Jewelry-making has been rooted in the expertise of a select few and passed down through direct apprenticeship, but the programs here break down barriers to the world of jewelry for everyone.”

Lectures, classes and workshops will be offered on subjects from Japanese urushi lacquer design to the history and gemology of engagement rings. But the most intriguing display may be the never-before-seen collection of 40 dazzling pieces that will be shown in its entirety for the first time.

Sessions run through November 9.
