Individuality reigns for Place Vendome jeweller Lorenz Baumer and his new designs

Discover Lorenz Bäumer's latest jewels, which offer a range of styles all under one designer for a luxurious look that is unlike anything else on Place Vendôme.

Lorenz Baumer Glacier necklace.

Lorenz Bäumer is a name in jewellery known to the discerning few. With but one showroom in Place Vendôme, Paris, which opened in the summer of 2013, Bäumer mainly sells through private appointments and trunk shows around the world. The brand has no big advertising campaigns or splashy celebrity events. Instead, it focusses on making original jewels for those who are looking for something different.

It was to Lorenz Bäumer that Princess Charlene of Monaco turned for a tiara to wear to her wedding party three years ago. The final design was in fact more of an 'aigrette' that sits like an Alice band on the head. Charlene chose Bäumer to create her head jewel as she liked the informality and playfulness of the 'Spray' design. The main motif can be detached and worn as a brooch.

And it is this same sense of uniqueness that Lorenz Bäumer's fans look for in his jewels. Recently, Bäumer was in London showing his latest collections. The first thing that stands out is the wide range of styles on show. "I don't do this 'themed collection' thing," explains Bäumer of the exotic panoply of jewels on display. Each one is quite different from the next, but what unites them all is a quirky individuality, interesting stone selections and great craftsmanship. "My jewels are for the woman who maybe already has the diamond ring and the big jewels and is looking for something no-one else has," explains Bäumer.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
