Born and raised in Romania, Corina Larpin now lives in Geneva where she runs jewellery design brand Stéfère with a partner. A designer driven by passion and instinct, she considers people her main source of inspiration—people she observes in the streets, those she’s met and has shared moments with, and, of course, people she loves. Among her A-list clients are Elton John, Lady Gaga, Victoria Beckham and Madonna.
“It’s always a challenge to design an engagement ring because it really is more than just a piece jewellery. It’s a token of love and loyalty that will be worn, hopefully, for many decades. It must also suit the taste of the bride-to-be and remain timeless. The ideal engagement ring is discreet yet remarkable enough to remind the wearer, and others, that he or she is engaged.”
