Founded in 2012 in Paris with the support of Van Cleef & Arpels, L’école des Arts Joailliers is dedicated to educating audiences–both beginners and experts–on all things jewelry. Following a series of successful traveling sessions, L’école des Arts Joailliers has found a permanent home in Dubai’s Design District. The jewelry school will offer a rich program of courses, panel talks, free temporary exhibitions, publications, and research projects. The courses offered at the school revolve around three themes: savoir-faire, the history of jewelry, and the universe of gemstones.
The L’école des Arts Joailliers opened the doors to its new Dubai campus with a special inaugural ceremony. Khadija Al Bastaki, Senior Vice President of Dubai Design District, Sophie Claudel, Director of L’École Middle East, Lise MacDonald, President of L’École, and Constance Guisset, Designer of L’École Middle East, were also in attendance.
To commemorate the occasion, the school debuted a special exhibition, ‘Garden of Emeralds.’ Open to the public, the mesmerizing presentation curated by Olivier Segura will run from November 23rd, 2023, to March 10th, 2024. Visitors can immerse themselves in the fascinating world of precious gemstones and discover some of the most exquisite creations, primarily from the Museum of the Ecole des Mines in Paris.
