In Store: Chaumet Hortensia

Chaumet's new floral-inspired collection has our abiding affection flourishing.

As fervent admirers of Parisian jewellery maison, Chaumet, we’re lusting in their direction yet again with the recent debut of their Hortensia collection – a sensational selection of beautiful, botanic pieces that take shape as refined jewellery bouquets. With each piece celebrating the eye-catching, distinctive beauty of the hydrangea flower (that’s soon to be blooming here), the impeccable designs evoke an air of femininity and grace.

Exuding the maison’s revered classicism in the form of a crown of flowers, the petals on each elegant Bandeau ring in the Hortensia collection are placed spontaneously to ensure each piece is a unique bouquet, composed in either yellow, white or pink 18-carat gold and, for superlative shine, embellished with diamonds. From a more delicately sized fine ring to two more statement sized styles and an extravagantly diamond adorned showstopper, each is equally refined, making for pieces that complement all occasions and attire.

The rings are perfectly complemented by the analogous pendants and earrings, which when paired together create enviable jewellery sets. Enhancing their everyday elegance, the pendants are all accompanied by long gold chains and come in either a ball pendant style or a diamond paved flat bouquet. The matching earrings promise to become new everyday favourites, with their versatility beautifying any outfit. And, numerous renditions of the French house’s timepieces have also been inspired by the hydrangea, making for refined daily accoutrements with unique, effeminate character.

The Chaumet Hortensia collection has recently arrived in store at Hartfield and makes for remarkable gifts, with pieces starting from $2,400.
