From his eponymous Maison located at 19 place Vendôme, Lorenz Bäumer continues to celebrate femininity with audacity. He talentedly shakes up the codes of jewelry, dares and innovates constantly in an always avant-garde style.
Each of his creations has a soul. He draws his inspiration from his passions: art and nature. The creator is above all an epicurean and a collector who likes to share his discoveries. In his salons on Place Vendôme, he would like you to taste a whiskey or rum from his personal collection, or share with you his passion for old drawings, photos of the Vendôme column, comics, or even knives...
Creator and precursor, Lorenz Bäumer is above all an authentic and generous artist, whose creativity knows no bounds.
