About GERARD RIVERON | Jewelry Expert
Often called a "jeweler's jeweler," Gerard Riveron has more than four decades of experience with Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, and as a private jeweler.
Quote: "I've spent my life curating, examining, and learning about high-end and custom-made Jewelry. The Designers I represent are inspired by nature, women, history, artists, cultures, music, ballet, and Love. I was never your typical salesman! Please tell me what you're looking for or hoping to create, and it will make your vision come to life. I take immense pride and joy in helping people find the perfect piece because it will forever bring Joy to their lives."
Mission: I launched this Luxury e-platform in 2017 to provide discreet, exclusive access to the collections of Independent Fine Jewelry Designers from France without a brand presence or distribution channel within the US. Each remarkable Designer is selected for their original designs, craftsmanship, quality, and production control within their workshops. Wherever you live, Paris is at your fingertips from the comfort of your home or office. Paired with this mission to reach the entire United States' potential jewelry clients is a plan to allow customers to participate in a live experience during personal appearances of the Designer and small intimate dinners for clients, all inspired by his 40-plus years of experience in Jewelry presentations to private clients, all over the world.
"Giving a piece of jewelry has always been the expression of the heart, the celebration of precious moments."
Mr. Riveron began his career in 1974 at the Cartier Paris' flagship store, 13 Rue de la Paix, where he was trained in sales and followed a one-year jewelry apprenticeship. He became a protégé of the legendary Jacques Arpels at the original Van Cleef & Arpels salon in Paris and Geneva, Switzerland. He has served as Cartier Privé's president and private jeweler in Paris, Monte Carlo, Geneva, Hong Kong, Beverly Hills, Marbella, Saint-Moritz, and the Middle East.
Gerard is accomplished at identifying, acquiring, and marketing highly distinguished Fine Jewelry worldwide. His passion for Fine Jewelry, his talent for discovering and developing designers, and his career-spanning relationships with private jewelry clients and Maisons make Mr. Riveron is uniquely qualified to curate and cultivate this remarkable collection.
After spending 40 years traveling the world and selling high-end Jewelry from the collections of celebrated Brands, Gerard felt compelled to enter the online business, allowing anyone, anywhere in the US, to have access to high-end jewelry purchases of unique Jewelry from the comfort of your home.
Based in Boston and South Florida, Gerard also organizes pop-up events, often in collaboration with a local business. On occasion, a Designer will fly from Paris for a personal appearance. This may grow into planning events in other cities within the United States.
