The limited-edition Épi de Blé ring and brooch pay tribute to a wheat sheaf tiara created by Nitot,that dates from 1811.
In the spirit of the yellow gold jewellery of the 1980s, glittering seeds of diamonds coil around the finger on the ring, while the stalks of wheat on the brooch stretch up towards the sun. In the hyper-naturalist tradition of the Maison, brown rhodium-plated gold is contrasted with brushed gold.
