Lydia Courteille invites you for Online Event on Gemflix.
“From when I was young, I had my own universe. I loved archaeology, mythology and travel, history and the natural world…A person can be inspired by that and put it into whatever their passion is. Mine is jewelry.”
-Lydia Courteille, as quoted in Jeweler: Masters, Mavericks and Visionaries of Modern Design by Stellene Volandes
A modern-day Renaissance woman, Lydia Courteille (@lydiacourteille) is a scientist, collector, gemologist and traveler. But above all, she is an antique jewelry dealer turned jewelry designer. Her creativity knows no bounds and her imagination has given birth to breathtaking, extravagant jewels, in some over 50 collections launched under her eponymous brand. Slightly provocative, yet truly wearable, her jewels are conversation pieces with stories to tell. Like this colorful cuff, featuring a nearly 200 carat aquamarine from the “Nuevo Mundo” collection, inspired by the Mayans of Guatemala. Join us for an explorative conversation between Lydia, and special returning guest host, Stellene Volandes (@stellenevolandes), Editor-in-Chief of Town & Country and the Editorial Director of Elle Decor. Lydia will share with us her passion for jewelry-antique pieces, contemporary creation, inspirations, as well as haute joaillerie stories and secrets.
