THE STORY OF THE HOUSE BOLOU, BOLETTE & BOLOU's DESIGN TEAM
Our Founder Bolette
Our journey starts with our Founder, Bolette Louise Sig Mathiasen, an unconventional, funny, free and artistic woman, raised in North Zealand and at boarding school in England, surrounded by entrepreneurs, tools and horses. Here she stood out as the creative soul in the family, with an eagerness for experiences. That might not sound like the recipe for a successful mini-jewellery empire – nevertheless, that's how it works. Bolette's entrepreneurial and horse genes got its first start at the age of 9 when her grandfather took her to the gallop on Sundays and taught her how 20 kroner on the right horse could turn into 100 kroner in an afternoon. Gambling itself was not of great interest to Bolette, but both the horses and running something herself had her heart from a very young age. The natural drive and a large amount of longing brought Bolette to Italy where she found her love not only for the country, the language and the people, but also for the jewellery, the craft tradition and the Italians' focus on quality. This was the first step towards a long and distinguished career in the jewelery industry.
Bolette is a trained goldsmith, designer and stone setter in Italy, as well as a gemmologist from GIA in New York. She specializes in diamonds, colored gemstones and pearls, and has built a massive network of international diamond and gemstone suppliers.
