Cécile Arnaud is a passionate designer of high jewellery and watches. With subtle and soft eyes that reveal an energy strong enough to lift mountains, her creativity expresses itself with both subtlety and force.
Cécile Arnaud started her career at Paris’ prestigious Ecole de la bijouterie- joaillerie, BJO. She has held a variety of positions within the high jewellery industry in Paris, including being manager of creative services in Van Cleef & Arpels.
She founded Cécile Arnaud Créations in 2002. The company has been commissioned variously by the Swatch group, Breguet, Léon Hatot, Dior and many others in different countries. This exposure to the world of high jewellery has given the company a broad and impressive understanding of the global jewellery business.
Creativity and inspiration
Each of the company’s individual designs is usually commissioned by a jewellery house and/or by private clients, with the starting point being either a visual theme or a specific anniversary, paying homage to personal achievement or launching a new collection. For each of these possibilities, initial ideas are drawn and painted by hand. They reveal a real and fascinating artistic vision and create a real impact. They are vital selling point for clients.
"People I work for appreciate the way I conceive true high jewellery. Like a chameleon, I immerse myself in the universe and the heritage of their brand in order to perceive all their artfulness. Once all absorbed, I can then set a trend for the new collections of these prestigious companies, without divulging their identity."
