Colours of spring: Chaumet Featured

Spring jewellery goes beyond ruby, emerald and sapphire

by 21 April 2016

While it is true that the jewellery industry remains a somewhat secretive trade, the diversified use of gemstones and precious materials has opened up a new world: jet, titanium, rock crystal are some of the best examples. Jewellery designers nowadays ask the question “why not?” as they push the envelop of what a beautiful piece should look like, or better yet, what it should be made of.


Parisian jewellery maison Chaumet's Josephine collection has taken Asia by storm, and no wonder: it's elegant, it's modern, and its different styles feature either a diamond (as a stunning engagement ring) or a coloured gemstone for a more day-to-day piece that transitions beautifully into the evening. The 'Aigrette Imperiale' design, inspired by the crown, has a wings-like silhouette, while 'Eclat Floral' has a tulip shape that exalts the central gem.
