Lydia Courteille

231 Rue St.-Honoré
Paris , France

Lydia Courteille is a haute couture jewelry designer with just one boutique on the ever-chic Rue St.-Honoré. Just around the corner from the dramatic Place Vendôme, the boutique is quite unassuming outside with royal blue wainscoting and a brass Lydia Courteille sign. The inside, however, is filled with both antique and newly-made jewelry. Known for her enormous cocktail rings and use of glittering precious stones, Lydia Courteille manages to fuse dead and living symbols such as skulls, animals, and bones into wearable, collectible objects d’art.
