Laurence Vandenborre is a young, experienced Belgian jewelry designer based in Antwerp. At the age of fourteen she was already selling her own handmade jewelry set with Swarovski pearls. But her true dream? Designing and marketing her very own collection.
With her master’s degree in Marketing and Strategic Intelligence (2013) and her degree in Gemology from the Gemological Institute of America (2015) in her pocket, Laurence began chasing her dream to become a jewelry designer. For 5 years she worked at HRD Antwerp, a renowned diamond laboratory in Antwerp. First as a lecturer and then as Marketing Director.
In June 2019 Laurence’s dream came true: she launched her first jewelry collection. All her creations were (and still are) a true embodiment of her vision: stylish jewelry that can be worn every day by women from every walk of life with every kind of budget. Elegant pieces that reflect their personal style, their character within and that make them feel unique and confident.
Laurence is an enormously creative mind: she plays with all sorts of colors, shapes and textures. That is why her refined, elegant and dynamic jewels speak to a very varied and wide target audience. Yes, there is a piece for every taste.
Everyone should be able to enjoy the beauty of gems like diamonds, sapphires, tourmalines and opals, according to Laurence. These precious stones are the centerpieces of her collections and come from all over the world (Madagascar, Sri Lanka, Thaïland,...).
As Laurence stands for high quality, all the stones are set by hand in 18K gold in her ateliers in Belgium and Italy. And there is more: she ethically analyses and selects all the gems she uses. Jewelry set with diamonds comes with grading reports issued by a renowned certification lab. High quality, ethics and transparency are of the utmost importance.
