LYDIA COURTEILLE FOR COUTURE PARIS FRANCE
International jewellery show «Couture» happens every year in the United States. It’s here that the most remarkable jewellers in the world get together to show off their latest pieces. I visited Lydia Courteille boutique in Paris as part of Couture Social Media Takeover!
Turquoise, opal, jade, coral, ivory – every vitrine has its color, its theme, each Lydia Courteille creation is like an adventure story just waiting to be read. I picked out our favourites from Lydia’s collection!
There is also plenty of nature to be experienced through the jewels at Lydia Courteille.
In fact the work of Lydia Courteille owes as much to this nature as it does to the work table!
Lydia imagines the women who will be wearing her jewelry: strong, mystical, liberated and ready to assume, fragile and feminine at the same time.
Courteille remains true to her artistic vision, each of the handcrafts is pure wearable magic.
Jewelry at Lydia Courteille remains an ultimate luxury…
Notice how the back is as beautifully finished as the front?
Each of the collections at the Lydia Courteille boutique has it’s own range of cool inspiration, each very different. Despite being so varied, there is still the natural, historical and symbolical references running through the designs.
The Crusades collection is instantly luxurious and spiritual.
I love how the jewelry falls between sculpture and fashion!
Lydia Courteille’s website design was developed in collaboration with Lithuanian artist Nathalie Shau, whose digital artwork represents surreal and strange women. Her characters are strong and powerful at the same time, something I find so reminiscent in Lydia Courteille’s jewelry.
Notably, Lydia Courteille jewelry has been picked out for Woody Allen’s movie, Midnight in Paris, for the publicity campaign of Yves Saint Laurent’s perfume «Opium», as well as for various fashion shows by Carven, Alexis Mabille, Prada and McQueen for Givenchy.
So much modern jewellery depicts the sweet, glamorous side of life. At Lydia Courteille it’s all about the reality check: find fine art themes throughout the jewels on display!
The timeless and eternal quality of life by Lydia Courteille is adorable! It’s made from an opal pendant complete with white diamonds and gold.
With my favourite professional jewellery photographer. To do justice to the beauty of each piece, I never take photos of such treasures with a phone camera!
As well as style, jewellery is all about fun too. Gemming the Amazonia collection.
Lydia Courteille was awarded the best «colored gemstone design» by Couture for the green turquoise bracelet with diamonds, emeralds and green garnets.
A jewellery tip: always take a look at the back of jewellery you are about to buy. It should be just as sensational as the front like on these fab examples at the Lydia Courteille boutique.
Create your own visual style… let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others!
Zodiac jewelry is fun and unique, and believe it or not, has a history all its own. The zodiac itself dates back further than 1000 BC! Whats your sign?
God save the Queen! Gemming an showstopping gemstone encrusted headpiece at the boutique!
