In store: Chaumet’s blossoming beauties

Would you care to join us for a mesmerising stroll in this spirited spring garden? Reflecting the season of renewal in all its glory, the fresh drop of relaxed opulence from Parisian jewellery house Chaumet pays stunning homage to a garden in full bloom as it awakens in the blushing light at dawn and sleeps in the shimmering glow of a clear summer night’s sky. Introducing, Hortensia Aube Rosée and Voie Lactée.

Drawing inspiration from Empress Joséphine’s love for magical gardens, the royal jewellers saw fit to romantically resurrect their tribute to the humble hydrangea — an exotic bloom in 19th century France. The resulting Aube Rosée collection is a blissfully beautiful spectrum of powdery pink bouquets destined to delight on a daily basis. Slipping into the star-studded night, the Voie Lactée (French for the Milky Way) offers a bold, unbridled interpretation of petals bathed in the milky glow of twilight that perfectly showcases the classic union of ice and ultramarine.

To truly appreciate these sparkling specimens, we highly recommend making your way to peruse them in person as soon as they burst into bloom this month at Hartfield.
