AM Designer of the Month : Lydia Courteille

Our choice for Designer of the Month this May goes to Lydia Courteille.

A French jewellery designer widely known for her quirky taste of design that makes her collections stand out among other competitors in the same industry. In her world the prosaic notion of "what will sell?" does not exist. She's not afraid to use colors and contrasts that are vibrant and unexpected. She embraces a wide range of historical periods, not allowing her passion for jewels to be temporally confined — some of her most ancient stones find their roots in the early 18th century. We can see her genuine passion for her career through her remarkable creations. Each different theme of her collections has it's own story to be read.
