The new Laurier Precious Jewelry collection celebrates the symbolic plant that has been a continuous presence in the Maison’s creations. Reinterpreted in diamonds and white gold, this glorious laurel serves to magnify contemporary femininity.
A symbol of immortality beloved of Joséphine, and an allegory of victory and power adopted by Napoléon, laurel also evokes a tribute to Apollo and Daphne. At Chaumet, it glorifies femininity. Like its recent interpretations in the High Jewelry Collection La Nature de Chaumet (and in particular Firmament Apollinien, whose diadem occupies a majestic place in the Maison’s new advertising campaign), Laurier, in a burst of movement, twists and comes alive as an expression of wild, luxuriant and sophisticated nature.
A ribbon is knotted around the foliage on the pair of earrings in a combination of nature and culture representative of the Maison. Each piece exquisitely expresses the jewelry virtuosity of Chaumet: asymmetrical compositions, leaves sculpted in volume and in several different designs – some entirely covered, others openworked – the mises à jour on the reverse of the motifs have been executed in three different ways… each detail an expression of the Maison’s great High Jewelry tradition.
