Lauren De Maere was raised in a family deeply rooted in the jewelry business. Although she was captivated by it from a young age, she initially chose to pursue studies in business and economics. However, as time went by, her passion for carrying on the family legacy became stronger. She decided to concentrate on delivering quality and working with 18K gold, undertaking various courses at the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). Her journey commenced with the introduction of a vintage collection called "La Trouvaille," which later evolved to encompass a wide range of fine jewelry collections, including bespoke creations, engagement rings, and wedding bands.
Lauren De Maere grew up in Knokke, Belgium, where her parents ran a jewelry store in the heart of the city for 40 years. While they have since taken a step back from the business, Lauren now operates a showroom in Knokke, where you can schedule an appointment for a personal and intimate experience. Her father, with years of experience as a goldsmith, continues to collaborate with Lauren behind the scenes.
