The “De Mains en Mains” initiative was born from Van Cleef & Arpels’ desire to help young people explore their professional future, particularly after the challenges posed by the first confinement. Marie-Aude Stocker, International Director of Human Resources at the Maison, is determined to show young people that the jewelry professions are within their reach and that they offer exciting prospects.

In addition to highlighting the jewelry professions, this event offers the opportunity to discover L'École des Arts Joailliers, a prestigious institution based in Paris. It will offer courses, conferences and creative workshops specially designed for young people aged 6 to 16, a unique opportunity to learn and be inspired.
