The origin of the Lumières d'Eau collection

Flowing, frozen, cascading - water is revealed in a swirling sea foam, a river of diamonds, a marine efflorescence… to be discovered like the immersed treasures of a golden palace at the bottom of the ocean. Under incandescent stars, water transforms into flames of yellow sapphires and aquamarines like heavenly pebbles casting their blue reflections on the skin. Light, pure lines and movement come together to offer a fountainlike long necklace, a diaphanous cuff bracelet, a shower of emeralds, a scintillating wave of tourmalines, an abyss of lapis lazuli and a precious web of sapphires with a jonquil yellow diamond in its centre, sparkling like a star above still water.

Combining misty ribbons and bold angles, curls and construction, subtle gradations of blues and greens, the “Lumières d’eau” collection is an alliance of softness and strength. A perfectly represented alliance by these rings adorned with rock crystal cabochons. It is an invitation to dive deep into the ocean, to embark on an exploration from the icebergs of the frozen Artic to the turquoise atolls of the Pacific.

"In its youthful limpidity, water is an inverted sky in which the stars take a new life."

Gaston Bachelard, Water and Dreams.
In the course of water, in the course of time

Light-as-air assembling, unexpected combinations of hard and precious stones; the work obeys the laws of intuition and excellence so that each piece is both supple and structured. These shimmering creations, these flowing nuances of colour, these marvels of asymmetry, all bear witness to the Maison’s commitment to excellence; 600 to 800 hours of work are required for one necklace. At Chaumet, each jewel expresses both construction and emotion, with the drawing as first and ultimate master. “It takes time to reach perfection“.

"Abysses"

The abyss. The intense blue of tanzanite associated with the even more profound blue of lapis lazuli drives us irresistibly to the ocean’s depths.

"Eau vive"

Dancing water. A torrent of High Jewellery rushes from its source with lightning speed to form swirls of pear-shaped diamonds.

"Lumières d’or"

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.

"Eau d'hiver"

Winter's water. Nature is captured in frost. Blocks of rock crystal and sparkling diamonds sculpt fantastic shapes, between rocks and comets.
