Le Grand Frisson jewellery collection marks a new stage in Chaumet’s exploration of romantic jewellery. Innovative in terms of the history it is rewriting and its abstract aesthetic style, this collection breaks away from the norms to give full expression to the strongest, most disruptive of feelings: falling in love. Le Grand Frisson jewels are of exceptionally high quality, with brightly sparkling unique stones and a complex, asymmetrical, contoured design.
The force of love is expressed in the abstract, as a very raw feeling, free of all interpretation. The interweaving of elements, without apparent order but in fact very structured, represents the explosion of emotions and loss of control you experience when you fall in love, a genuine eruption of the heart. The combination of coloured stones is unexpected and precious, symbolising the chance nature and magic of a romantic meeting.
The stones in this collection are unique and unexpected: jonquille diamonds, pigeon’s blood rubies, spessartite, tsavorite or dermantoid garnets, paraiba or rubellite tourmalines, pink sapphires… Each stone has been selected with true love.
Sometimes, the impulse was so great that two stones were placed side by side, like a chance romantic meeting. At other times, the vibration of juxtaposed colours was so dense that the whole was immediately adopted.
