Biography of Eric Humbert

He didn’t see himself becoming a jeweller. On the contrary, Eric Humbert wanted to follow a different path from his father who was an eminent master jeweller. But fate decided otherwise : following a serious motorcycle accident, Claude Humbert lost the use of his legs and asked his 17-year-old son if he was prepared to work alongside his father and assist him in his jewellery workshop at 46, Rue des Hallebardes in Strasbourg.

Eric Humbert thus learned the trade from his father, patiently, thoroughly, with sure gestures, proven techniques, precision of detail and the balance of proportions. Fortunately, the passion for creative jewellery came to him during his years of apprenticeship.

On the death of his father in 1996, Eric Humbert perpetuated his art, enriching his heritage with the echo of the long-distance voyages that he ceaselessly undertook. 1996 was the year of rupture, of departure to distant shores in order to take stock, recharge his batteries and open up to new sensibilities. Eric Humbert discovered the world : South America, Ethiopia, Australia, Polynesia, etc. These destinations gave wings to his migratory eyes, renewing his imagination. He retained the images and colours and brought back beads, precious stones, diamonds, rubies, emeralds, tourmalines, mysterious opals, etc.

His sketchbooks are full of drawings pencilled on the wave of inspiration. After consideration they give rise to production sketches, so many jewels paying homage to the beauty of far away lands and the richness of cultures encountered. As a genuine alchemist, Eric Humbert combines the rigour of French know-how with the vibration of emotion. Light, colours, materials – the flash of gems, the sensuality of lines, the harmony of forms : his jewels touch the soul and speak to the heart.
