ARTIST PROFILE

LYDIA COURTEILLE

At Lydia Courteille flamboyant creativity meets the unusual and the rarest of gemstones.

Scientist, collector, gemmologist and traveller, but at heart an antique jewellery dealer, Lydia Courteille started to create since 1998, conjuring up more than fifty collections so that she could share her passions, knowledge and creativity with her clients.

A free spirit, her humor and audacity knows no limits; provocation is never far away from her extraordinary imagination. Mysterious symbols, archaeology from the distant past, flora and fauna are all part of her intoxicating mix. Her jewels are nevertheless wearable and her parures noble in style.

“I make jewels as others might write poetry”

(after Madeleine Castaing)
