MEET LAURENCE

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 fine jewelry collection.

With her master’s degree at HEC in Marketing & Management (2013) and her degree in Gemology from the Gemological Institute of America (2015), 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 senior Lecturer and then as Marketing Director.

In 2018 Laurence’s dream came true: she launched her first fine jewelry collection. All her designs are a true embodiment of her vision: stylish and luxury jewelry pieces that can be worn every day by women from every walk of life. Elegant pieces that reflect their personal style, their character, and that make them feel unique and confident.

Laurence is a creative mind: she plays with all sorts of colors, shapes and movements. That is why her refined and elegant jewels speak to a very varied and wide target audience. Precious stones like diamonds, sapphires, emeralds and tourmalines are the centerpieces of her collections and come from all over the world (Madagascar, Sri Lanka, Columbia, Thaïland,...).

As Laurence stands for high quality, all her jewels are made by hand in recycled 18K gold in her ateliers in Belgium and Italy. She also ethically analyses and selects all the gems she offers. Jewelry set with diamonds comes with grading reports issued by a renowned certification lab, as transparency towards the customer is her number one priority.
