Jewelry Making Classes

Legendary jeweler Van Cleef & Arpels still makes jewelry in an 18th-century mansion on Place Vendôme and its two-story school—hosted in another gorgeous mansion nearby—offers a wide range of courses for jewelry enthusiasts, from the history of Art Nouveau jewelry to a course that teaches students the art of Japanese Urushi Lacquer. The premier experience may be access to Van Cleef & Arpels Creations, where students get to visit the jewelry workshop and meet the famous Mans d’Or craftsmen (from $115).
