German Jewelry Designer in Paris
Lorenz Bäumer was born in the United States in 1965, grew up from one country to another through the missions of his German diplomat father and my French mother. His childhood of globe-trotter made him discover the diversity of the world and influenced all of his artistic career. Bäumer always had a fascination for creation in all its forms, eventually turning his passion into a career.
After his studies as an engineer at the Ecole Centrale de Paris, Bäumer opened his first salons at 23 rue Royale in 1989 to sell costume jewelry. Six years later he moved to 4 Place Vendôme and gradually he abandoned the jewelry fantasy from 1992 to devote himself exclusively to jewelry. The creation of the "Ecume de Diamants" tiara for the wedding of SAS Prince Albert of Monaco with Charlène Wittstock in 2010 was a great moment for Bäumer. In 2013 Bäumer opened his shop at 19 Place Vendôme, next to the Ritz.
Lorenz Bäumer likes the connection between architecture and poetry. The connection between structure, rhythm, balance, and the very language of architecture that corresponds in certain ways with those of sonnets, odes and epics. Bäumers geometric shapes and clean lines gives creations a resolutely contemporary dimension. But beyond this apparent modernity, Bäumer loves to give his jewelry pieces soul and authenticity, each jewel bears a message that has a hidden meaning and does not follow the codes of classic jewelry. Lorenz Bäumer prefers to distinguish himself by his innovation, passion and creativity.
I have shared a few of my favorite designs from Lorenz Bäumer.

in the form of a semicircle
of interchangeable stones"
