How did your brand begin?
Le Kadeau was born in 2018 from a vision, I wanted to embrace the values of my familiar traditions in jewellery field and connect them with new inspiration for today’s women: elegant, brave, free and ironic.
Values are really important to us at JewelStreet. What are your core brand values?
Le Kadeau values are the passions, the manual skills of our Italian skilled artisans, craftsmanship, the desire of experimentation and a natural inclination to women desires.
Where do you get inspiration for your designs?
We take inspiration from nature, reconnecting to its essence, living unexpected moments and start a journey in its elements trough observation, comprehension and assimilation. We transform the complexity of nature into unique and essential details.
How is your jewellery made?
The jewels are manufactured by Italian skilled artisans, with a masterful experience in the art of goldwork. My uniqueness is given by the mechanism hidden in every jewels structure. It is really nice because you can play with it.
How do you source your materials and gemstones?
We choose jewels materials with our Italian artisans: we use diamonds, coloured varnish, gold 18kt and 9kt, in specific colours for each parure.
Are there any celebrities you would love to see wearing your designs?
Dakota Jhonson, Zooey Deschanel and Alexa Chung: she is a confident woman with a rebel soul, inspired by the great Anna Karina, a great actress, beauty icon and Godar’s wife, and the revolutionary Jane Birkin.
How do you want someone to feel when they wear your jewellery?
I want that they feel comfortable, loved and confident. I am talking to elegant, free and ironic women and I believe that authenticity consists in all choices made day by day, which are part of women’s stories, career, style and everyday activities.
If you could only wear one piece from your collection, what would it be and why?
I would wear Pause Ring of the Dandelion Collection. It is so significant because it is that jewel from which the idea of this collection has started. Dandelion is a transformation dream and my first collection. It is my first gift to women.
Do you work with any charities?
Yes we are working with Cesvi Onlus, an international humanitarian association, with a fundraising for COVID emergency. Cesvi is activating various health and social initiatives to support the Province of Bergamo and Milan in Italy.
If you could travel to one place in the world right now, where would it be and why?
I would go to Japan to admire nature during the Hanami and learn the Japanese art of flowers, Ikebana. Le Kadeau name, in fact, is partially composed by the french word Cadeau and the Japanese kadō, an obsolete word used to say Ikebana.
Are there any other designers whose work you particularly admire, and what jewellery is on your current wishlist?
really love Yael Sonia jewels. They make me feel like I was in a dream!
