The Ecole des Arts Joailliers opens a second prestigious showcase in Paris

L’École des Arts Joailliers, founded in 2012 with the support of Van Cleef & Arpels, has just inaugurated a second Parisian site within an 18th-century mansion listed as a Historical Monument. This is its fifth location worldwide aimed at sharing the passion for jewelry and gemology with the general public.


Sharing the passion for jewelry with as many people as possible, but in an exceptional place… This has been the mission since its inception in 2012 of L’École des Arts Joailliers, initiated with the support of Van Cleef & Arpels (Richemont group).


After already opening a first site at a prestigious address, at 31 rue Danielle Casanova, near Place Vendôme, which was closed for a few months for renovation, L’École des Arts Joailliers has doubled up in Paris.


It has indeed just opened a second site, this time on the Grands Boulevards, again in an exceptional location, the Hôtel de Mercy-Argenteau, listed as a Historical Monument.


This 18th-century mansion is “one of the oldest private residences built and preserved in this part of Paris.”


Interior architect and designer Constance Guisset conceived the layout in the heart of this neoclassical architecture and its gilded wood-paneled salons, allowing for various activities – courses and lectures, “designed to welcome jewelry enthusiasts and the curious of all ages”, children’s workshops, exhibitions – but also a library and a bookstore.


“With this new unique location in Paris, nestled within an 18th-century mansion, L’École des Arts Joailliers continues its mission of sharing jewelry culture with as many people as possible,” emphasizes Lise Macdonald, President of L’École des Arts Joailliers. It (…/…) perpetuates its mission of transmission, learning, and wonder!”
