Maison Chaumet has launched a new Torsade de Chaumet high jewellery collection, celebrating one year since the renovation of the Hôtel Particulier at 12 Vendôme.
The torsade pieces, or twist in English, act as an ode to movement and life, while also providing a tribute to the square on which the maison was the first jeweller to open in 1812.
The collection features white jewels to highlight each piece’s “radiance and line”, as well as duos of diamonds and sapphires, rubies or emeralds.
Entwined or suspended, the centre stones are highlighted by the twist motion, and have been selected “one by one for their extraordinary aura”.
As the signature Chaumet jewel, a tiara “captures the grace of interlacing sweeping” around a line of diamonds, while the collection also features a necklace, bracelet, ring, and earrings.
Cushion-cut Ceylon sapphires provide a “subtle palette” on the necklace, and are added as monochrome on two rings and a bracelet.
A number of the newly launched rings and earrings contain red Mozambique rubies, which also intend to emphasise the fall of a negligee necklace.
Finally, the Torsade de Chaumet collection comes as a contemporary offering, designed to be mixed with a ball ring and a bracelet or necklace that feature the twist theme.
