Solitaire (Singapore) - - KINCHOS -

Lorenz Bäumer is a vi­sion­ary who is not afraid to push the bound­aries of jew­ellery de­sign. From his bou­tique at the leg­endary Place Vendôme in Paris, Lorenz show­cases his dar­ing cre­ations, bring­ing to­gether po­etry and fine jew­ellery de­sign in­no­va­tion for dis­cern­ing clients to en­joy.

For more than a quar­ter of a cen­tury, Lorenz has ap­proached jew­ellery de­sign dif­fer­ently, thanks to his ed­u­ca­tional back­ground as an engi­neer. His au­da­cious and in­no­va­tive pieces are in­spired by ei­ther po­etry or ar­chi­tec­ture. He is one of the post-modern heirs to the legacy of high jew­ellery de­signer Jean Sch­lum­berger, who did his finest work for Tif­fany & Co. Lorenz also dis­plays the same sense of vol­ume and sen­si­bil­ity for coloured gem­stones, but his cre­ations have an edge and at­ti­tude about them, which were never seen in the mid-20th cen­tury.

In 2010, Lorenz cre­ated the Ec­ume de Dia­mants tiara for princess Char­lène of Monaco for her wed­ding to Prince Al­bert II. His works have been recog­nised in­ter­na­tion­ally through var­i­ous pres­ti­gious ex­hi­bi­tions, among them the Na­tional Jewelry In­sti­tute of Amer­ica in 1997. In France, four of Lorenz’s jew­els are in­cluded in the per­ma­nent col­lec­tions of the Mu­seum of Dec­o­ra­tive Arts in Paris.

Prior to carv­ing his own name in the in­dus­try, Lorenz has de­signed for Chanel Fine Jew­ellery be­tween 1988 and 2007, joined Louis Vuit­ton as artis­tic di­rec­tor for fine jew­ellery in 2009, and done free­lance work for the Aus­trian crys­tal man­u­fac­turer Swarovski.
