Following a long line of jewlers in her family, Yvonne Léon graduated from the renowned Parisian school of Esmod and began her career in the fashion world working as a stylist and editorial assistant for various publications. She returned to her roots and started a jewelry line bringing a fresh approach to her designs. Léon frequents flea markets and museums as her passion for vintage is the primary source of inspiration in the development of her collections. Léon’s jewelry is more than a tribute to the past, she plays with the traditional lines and adds her own unique elements with a modern twist.
No designer understands the dessous d'oreille earring quite like Yvonne Léon does. Her father is the one who invented the style in the eighties and she has been wearing them ever since she was little. While the style has become very fashionable and replicated by many designers, Yvonne pays homage to her father’s original design and modernizes it with her French chic style.
