“Mermaids' Song” Necklace in white gold, set with a 23.81-carat cushion-cut green tourmaline, a 5.35-carat marquise-cut Paraiba tourmaline, eight 14.11-carat Paraiba tourmalines, a 0.46-carat D VVS2 brilliant-cut diamond, Tahitian grey pearls and brilliant-cut diamonds.
Seductive like its muse, the “Mermaids' Song” set is not intended to cause shipwrecks, but to captivate those around it. This sumptuous necklace, with its intertwining of green Tahitian pearls and almost lime-cut tourmalines, including a 23.79-carat cushion, is a testament to this. The Maison's emblematic virtuosity, the fil-couteau technique, brings lightness to this creation, as if from the depths of the ocean, while giving the impression of diamonds floating in the air. A final echo of the naiads, the carefully imagined and worked settings evoke undulating scales.
Since its creation in 1780, Chaumet has drawn its inspiration from the elements of nature. Water plays a major role. With Ondes et Merveilles de Chaumet, the Maison dedicates an entire collection of high jewellery to the sea. An invitation to travel, exploring a variety of horizons to tell the story of the sea in all its manifestations, from waves caressing the water’s surface through to underwater treasure hunts, ships in ports of call and the currents of the Gulf Stream.
