A gift of the gods to mortals, wheat symbolises life, the earth’s bounty and the golden days of harvest. The goddess Ceres’ sumptuous gold grain provides both physical and spiritual nourishment as it represents maternal love. Echoing the pieces created by Chaumet for Empresses Joséphine and Marie-Louise, these ears of wheat bend in the breeze and imbue the diamond sets with precious generosity.

Offrandes d’été

The wheat sheaves represented by the nine pieces of the Offrandes d’été set seem freshly picked from the fields; highlighted by diamonds, their luminous grains burst with life. A necklace, a headband tiara, three rings, a brooch, two pairs of earrings and a precious watch evoke bouquets tied with simple elegance, some of which are enhanced by a pear-shaped diamond drop.

Champs de lumière

Lit-up by the delicate orangey pink of Padparadscha sapphires, the open-worked wheat motifs of the Champs de lumière creations are kissed by the sun’s rays filtering through the cuff bracelet, the ring and the pair of earrings. An impressionist image of fields bathed in summer sunset light, when the harvest’s bountiful sheaves are gathered.

Moissons sous le vent

Warmed by summer and bending in a soft breeze, the golden ears of the Moissons sous le vent parure combine the sensuality of yellow gold with the sparkle of diamonds in celebration of the vintage style of the 1980s. The set features two brooches, two rings, including a “between-the fingers” creation, two pairs of earrings and a watch with a tourbillon volant complication.
