Passionate about Art Deco and Retro jewelry art, Lara van Schaik is a professional gemologist and the owner of an online boutique “La Chatelaine Jewelry”. The boutique sells exquisite high-quality French and Dutch jewels of 1900-1960s. Her web boutique got such an appropriate name thanks to French locals, who called her La Chatelaine. In fact, La chatelaine means “Lady of the Manor” or “Key holder”, and she is both. Thus, she runs a 18th century chateau located in Burgundy and rents it out for weddings and parties.
Born into the family of antique jewelry dealer (her mum), Lara grew up with some knowledge and love for jewelry. And later she decided to turn her life passion into a jewelry company. Traditionally, she finds her treasures in Paris and in the French countryside, auctions, and exhibitions. Noteworthy, she blogs about her “trouvailles”, jewelry stories, notable events and all activities. Her blog is truly informative and interesting to read. La Chatelaine aims to help woman to become confident, independent and smart in wearing retro jewelry that underlines her personality.
