There is an expressive lyricism in the exquisite jewellery created by Parisian maison Chaumet. Their latest Les Ciels de Chaumet High Jewellery collection is yet another ode to art and poetry, taking inspiration from nature’s celestial wonders.
The sparkle of gathered stars, the curve of a crescent moon, the brilliance of the sun and birds sweeping across the sky — a multitude of motifs have been reinterpreted to create a selection of femininely graceful necklaces, earrings, bracelets, rings, brooches, tiaras and watches.
The Les Ciels de Chaumet High Jewellery collection unfolds in four distinct lines.
Les Caprices du Ciel
That magical moment when golden sunrays peep through parting clouds is expressed by the most striking piece in this series: the Lueurs d’Orage necklace. Comprising a colourful mesh of sapphires, amethysts and tanzanites, it leads to the deep amber glow of a spectacular 37.68-carat, imperial topaz. Matching rings, earrings, brooches and watches complete this parure.
Les Couleurs du Ciel
The many shades of a fiery sun inspire the pieces in this series. With vibrant mandarin garnets, red Burmese spinels and yellow sapphires, the Soleil de Feu necklace recalls the sun at its zenith. In contrast, twinkling white and yellow diamonds in the Soleil Glorieux tiara emulate the radiance of a rising sun.
Les Fulgurances du Ciel
Recreating the beauty of the night sky, this line enhances the inner glow of every woman with a shower of diamond stars in the Étoiles Étoiles parure. The dancing ripples of the starry cascade necklace, the positioning of the stars on a tiara and the luminous caress of the earrings all illustrate Chaumet’s exceptional artistry.
Les Habitants du Ciel
Graceful birds in flight are depicted in this line. Adorned with vivid green tsavorite garnets, the swallows of the Envol jewellery add enchantment, while the dancing waders of Parade lend elegance to a parure set with diamonds and pink and yellow sapphires.
