Loyal to the Maison's naturalistic tradition, Chaumet’s new High Jewellery collection celebrates water in its myriad forms… whispering streams, childhood ricochets, rain-drenched skies, sun-lit lakes, asymmetric stalactites and frozen beauties.
Fifty-three exceptional pieces, divided into 12 sets, make up this incredible flight into the imagination, created for the Biennale Exhibition in Paris from September 11th to 21st 2014.
Winter’s water. Nature is captured in frost. Blocks of rock crystaland sparkling diamonds sculpt fantastic shapes, between rocks and comets.
The abyss. In the ocean’s depths, tanzanite treasures are discovered; starry earrings, a long necklace embellished with a tassel of graded lapis lazuli and black spinels, and a ring adorned with a tanzanite and sculpted lapis lazuli.
Dancing water. A torrent of High Jewellery rushes from its source with lightning speed to form swirls of pear-shaped diamonds.
Golden light. Yellow sapphires gleam in the light of the South Seas. The three-row long necklace of yellow sapphires and golden pearls is a wonder of radiance.
"When I choose a watch, I'm looking for something both casual and formal, that I can wear for any occasion."
"Its feminine design is perfectly adapted to formal situations, and it suits my every day style too."
"How would you reply if I asked what your watch meant to you? Is it one of life's necessities, or a fashion accessory? Or both? In truth, watches have a special significance for women."
"One thing shared by both watches and women is that they embody an attitude to life."
"There are only a few things that make people see you in a specific way and those details are the ones that truly make you special."
"… only you are in charge of choosing which pieces will add the defining everyday touch, and that's why when I chose my clothes and accessories I'm very careful."
"Since discovering Liens I've realised it is a truly symbolic piece that's arrived to stay for a long time ! Welcome to the family ;)"
