L’ÉCOLE, School of Jewelry Arts is here in Hong Kong for its third edition. This year, the school’s president, Marie Vallanet-Delhom, has led her team of professors back to our city for a series of ten tailor-made courses (six of which are brand new) as well as Creative Workshops and Evening Conversations, offering a chance for gemstone lovers and artisans to delve deeper into the fascinating world of jewellery.

To mark its return to Hong Kong and the start of this year’s two-week programme, L’ÉCOLE, with the support of Van Cleef & Arpels, hosted a cocktail party on 14 September. With Champagne and canapés to nibble on, VIPs were offered a first glimpse of the beautiful pop-up space at The Qube in PMQ, designed by Johnny Li. Click ahead to see photos of sophisticated guests at the exclusive event, and don’t forget to sign up for the courses before the programme ends on 1 October, 2017.
