Hélène and Jeanne Karpov are sisters.
Of Russian origin, they grew up in France, surrounded by the sounds and images of Russia. From their grandfather, founder of the Driot copper workshops, they have inherited rigour, and a passion for manual work.
From their father, a graduate of Saint-Petersburg’s Fine Arts Academy, they inherited a boundless imagination and creativity. As a life they chose jewelry, and jewelry chose them. After several years spent drawing for the greatest houses of the Place Vendôme, years they spent immersed in gemstones and jewels, they decided to launch a brand that will have their name: Karpov.
