The story behind each of my creations starts with an encounter, an idea, an emotion, a craving.

Then there is still to bring this emotion to life and to translate it in a very precise way. The luxury of a jewel lies in what it tells, so they say … that is why there is still to tell the story.

It starts as all fairy tales: there once was … a gemstone: a blue sapphire, a tourmaline with orange pink sparkles, a morganite … White and color diamonds appear and disappear … according to our desires. The choice of a gemstone must not leave anything to chance; its shape, the intensity of its color, everything takes part in setting the scene.

From sketches to drawings, from drawings to mock-ups, the jewel softly comes to life…

Fluidity and excellence of the making of each jewel depend on the expertise of talented craftsmen. For me, Antwerp, capital of the diamond, stands out as the unrivalled guarantee of a flawless work and the art craftsmen with whom I work play a crucial role in the design of each jewel.

My creations meet several expectations: first, avoid the “too much” or the “show off” effect and aim at unspoken elegance, harmony and poetry…

Secondly, I constantly keep in mind that a jewel cannot be isolated from the woman who will wear it. Lastly, I want to privilege a top end service, as well as be available and open…
