Van Cleef & Arpels to open jewelry courses

Van Cleef & Arpels launching Paris jewelry school

Van Cleef & Arpels will make history in February 2012 by opening its first jewelry school, where students from across the globe can gain unique insight into the world of creating world-class adornments.

Situated in Paris’s elegant Place Vendôme, where Van Cleef & Arpels opened its very first boutique, the courses will cover subjects such as interpreting gemstones, Symbol and Power of Jewels and Accessing Van Cleef & Arpels Creations. Classes are available in French and English, and students can sign up to as many classes as they like depending on where their interests rest.

Enrolment for the 2012 sessions is open from November 15 and registration can be done via the website, where there is more information about fees and course dates.

“L’Ecole offers a unique opportunity to discover and learn for those who are passionate about jewelry, lovers of beauty or simply curious and anyone who wishes to acquire inside knowledge of this fascinating world,” explained president Marie Vallanet-Delhom.
