Portrait of Louiza Leclercq
Meet Louiza Leclercq, a creative director and the founder of Louiza Jewellery! Currently residing in Paris, Louiza Leclercq was born in Krasnodar, Russia, and is of Armenian heritage. She’s lived and worked all over the world, including Russia, New York, Paris, London, Tokyo and Hong Kong. While living in Hong Kong Louiza has met a jeweller selling Columbian emeralds, needless to say, it was through this connection Louiza has started her journey. A journey where her fascination with gemstones grew, and where she has developed an understanding of the intriguing science behind gemstones. With the gemological degree from the Gemmological Association of Great Britain, or Gem-A, London, Louiza felt following her dreams already seemed feasible.
With her background in finance and her experience at Gem-A, Louiza spent years developing her business, which allowed Louiza to gain invaluable experience and consequently, she gained the confidence to create the jewellery that reflected her vision. Behind this vision, it was a brand that could reach a broad spectrum of women, with pieces that would be cherished for generations.
Louiza Jewellery inspired by a broad and eclectic mix of influences, from fine art and ballet to architecture and geometry, Louiza Leclercq has sought to encapsulate the sculptural modernity which fascinates her aesthetic as refined, elegant and clean in her eponymous jewellery line. With a passion for "beautifully crafted design in all its forms", Louiza’s collections are influenced by architectural elements, everyday objects, her love for art, dance and bold colourful multicultural patterns. All pieces are designed in close collaboration with her team in France and made with reputable, family-run factories in Italy.
