jewelry curator | about GERARD RIVERON
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 all 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! Tell me what you’re looking for or hoping to create and will make your vision come to life. I take great pride and joy in helping people find the perfect piece because it is something that will bring Joy to their lives forever”Mission: I launched this Luxury e-platform in 2017 with the mission 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 chosen is selected for his or her original designs, craftsmanship, quality, and control of production within their individual 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.
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 jewelry apprenticeship for one year. He then became a protégé of the legendary Jacques Arpels at the original Van Cleef & Arpels salon in Paris and Geneva, Switzerland. He has served as President of Cartier Privé, and as a 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 from around the world. His passion for Fine Jewelry, the talent for discovering and developing designers — along with his career-spanning relationships with private jewelry clients and Maisons — make Mr. Riveron 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, Gerard also organize 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 in the future into planning events in other cities within the United States.
