Parure Grand Opus


TWIST ÉMERAUDE BRACELET
White gold, round diamonds, round mauve sapphires, 2 cabochon-cut emeralds of 19.80 and 21.48 carats (Colombia).
With its bold combination of colors and lines, this bracelet takes its style from the torque bracelets that inspired the Maison from the 1920s onwards. On either side of a braid, two emerald cabochons – weighing 19.80 and 21.48 carats – seem united in a precious embrace. The curve is accompanied by coiled lines of diamonds and violet sapphires, which contrast with the two stones. The latter share the same intense green, accentuated by the depth of their cabochon cut, the same clear consistency – harmoniously complemented by “jardin” inclusions – and a brilliance rare in polished gems. The Twist Émeraude bracelet’s symmetry and subtle gradation of stones required jewelry-making savoir-faire of great precision, which is also reflected in the piece’s opening system. Its two extremities smoothly move apart to make way for the wrist, before returning to their original tête-à-tête.

CLAUDINE NECKLACE
White gold, yellow gold, round, tapered-cut, triangle-cut, baguette-cut and pear-shaped diamonds, buff-topped round emeralds, 9 emerald-cut emeralds for a total of 42.07 carats (Colombia).
Inspired by the famous Claudine collar, this necklace recalls the great French jewelry of the early 19th century with its regular and majestic composition. It gives pride of place to nine emeralds from old Colombian mines, whose weights vary from 3.99 to 6.04 carats for a total of 42.07 carats. The emerald cut constitutes an invitation to plunge into the heart of the gems to admire their lifelike, highly crystalized consistency. Set on diamond motifs, they punctuate the precious garlands that compose this transformable piece. The front motif – set with the largest stone – can be removed and worn as a clip, while the tie motif at the rear includes a detachable pendant, also adorned with an emerald.

LUNE D’EAU BETWEEN THE FINGER RING
White gold, platinum, round diamonds, baguette-cut emeralds, one pear-shaped D IF diamond of 3.03 carats, one pear-shaped emerald of 3 carats (Zambia).
The Lune d’eau Between the Finger™ Ring brings two freshly bloomed water lilies together against the skin. It presents a tender encounter between a Zambian emerald and a diamond, both carefully matched in weight and form. The 3-carat emerald, cut in an elongated pear shape, reveals its intense color with a hint of femininity, while the 3.03-carat D IF diamond of exceptional quality instills the piece with purity and brilliance. Around the two central stones, round diamonds and baguette-cut emeralds depict the water lily leaves, which are arranged at different heights and angles to create a subtle relief. As much attention has been paid to the piece’s comfort as it has to its appearance: the ring’s body has been intricately worked to elegantly hug the hand.
