The Spirit of
As the great-great grandson of iconic jeweler Louis Cartier, Jean Dousset was born with an impeccable taste for rare gems, craftsmanship, and artistry. In 1992, his personal legacy began at the global epicenter of high jewelry: Place Vendôme in Paris, where he earned a prestigious position with Chaumet. In 1996, Dousset took an apprenticeship with the renowned French jewelry designer Boucheron, where he was mentored by Alain Boucheron himself. He later joined Van Cleef & Arpels as the International Director of High Jewelry Exhibitions, where he was then relocated to resurrect and direct the brand’s prestigious showroom in Beverly Hills.
In 2010, Jean Dousset officially opened his Los Angeles showroom. He felt the increasing need to express his creativity in a more personal way and decided to venture out on his own. Dousset continues to be inspired by his lineage, striving to meet the same standards of his great-great grandfather, while carving out a name all his own through his contemporary and innovative fine jewelry designs.
