Monsieur Louis Gérard was formally an executive at Van Cleef & Arpels and founded his own company with the assistance of Comtesse de Ribes in 1968. Within a decade he became one of the largest jewelers in Paris, London and Monte Carlo with a reputation for fine jewelry manufactured to the highest possible standard. In 1985, he sold the company to a group of American investors and continued to run the firm until his retirement in 1988.
