Every Monday The Carat Soup shines a spotlight on hidden gems: extraordinary women in our industry. This week my focus is on Cécile Lugand. She is a lecturer at l’Ecole School of Jewelry Arts (supported by Van Cleef & Arpels) in Paris, France.

Lugand has a Masters in History and Art Criticism as well as a PhD in History of Art. She speaks German, English and French.
