High jewellery is all about opulence and grandeur. And if there’s one city that truly encapsulates that, it would be Paris – which is why Chaumet’s latest high jewellery collection was displayed at the salons of Maison Chaumet at 12 Vendome in the city, and presented via a virtual preview.
Named Perspectives de Chaumet, the collection celebrates the French jeweller’s penchant for architectural inspiration and 240 years of craftsmanship. There are six categories of intricate jewellery pieces – Skyline, Lux, Lacis, Ondulation, Mirage, Labyrinthe – each reflecting a different style of building in the City of Lights.
It’s still unclear when Perspectives de Chaumet would arrive in Singapore for your viewing pleasure, but we spoke to Jean-Marc Mansvelt, CEO of Chaumet, to get an inside peek at how it’s conceptualised, and the challenges in realising it.
