Jewelry Designer- Lydia Courteille

Lydia Courteille, is a gemologist first and foremost, an antique dealer and a creator. Her pieces combine the most precious and atypical gems with a true love of all things original and unique.

Her inspiration is Gothic romance and forest landscapes - as well as her continual search for the world's most beautiful antique pieces from all over the world. Some of her most special pieces date from the 16th Century.

I myself am completely taken with her 9 Planets Collection. I'm going to feature one portion of this collection each day. The first of which is below. Enjoy.


Not only are Lydia's jewels absolutely exquisite but the accompanying artwork by Natalie Shau is evocative and perfectly compliment the jewels. You know how I love those illustrators!
