The precious and poetic world of Sylvie Corbelin

Sylvie Corbelin began her career as a Paris antiques dealer and quickly earned the title of "expert" in this field. Immersed in a world of strange and beautiful objects from ages past, she developed a trained eye and a love for the rare and unusual piece. Sylvie also became fascinated with gems, and pursued this passion by embarking upon studies that would lead her to become a state-cerified Gemologist.

Combining her love for unique and exquisite objects and her knowledge of extraordinary gems, Sylvie began to design, and Sylvie Corbelin's jewelry line was born. Her jewels are made with only the finest materials such as gold or patinated silver, precious cabochons, coral, turquoise, baroque pearls and diamonds. Her work has been featured in W, French and Italian Vogue, L'Officiel, and Elle Magazine.

Sylvie Corbelin's collection pieces were on exhibit at Pavillon des Arts and Design, Paris.

"I see a stone, a sapphire for example, and I have to make something. I start with the material, then I dream."
