an elegant touch
We look to the French when it comes to investing in some timeless everyday sparkle.
Sometimes life calls for a touch of elegance. In amongst the hoards of costume and fashion jewellery we seem to be faced with today, there is something to be said about the appeal of a classic pair of diamond earrings. You know the old cliché that everything old becomes new again?
Well we think fine jewellery is no exception. Step in Chaumet.
Celebrating their 230th anniversary, the renowned French jewellery house embodies every bit of the term classic. Their latest collection pays tribute to the house’s first muse Empress Joséphine, wife of Napoleon Bonaparte.The collection, which includes tiara inspired rings, watches and necklaces also includes this pair of drop diamond earrings – a direct interpretation from the “chérusque” motif, which was the lace found on Josephine’s imperial gowns. The Joséphine Earrings are 18-carat rhodium plated white gold is set with brilliant cut diamonds.
So while we wait for a certain fine piece of jewellery to adorn our fingers, we are turning to the timeless, elegant addition of a pair of diamond earrings to add a bit of sparkle to the everyday.
