EIGHT UNIQUE JEWELS, INCLUDING A SECRET TIMEPIECE, IN A NEW COLLECTION GLORIFYING THE MAGNIFICENT POWER OF OCEAN WAVES
Spilling waves, plunging waves, surging waves. Collapsing waves, tidal waves, progressive waves. Capillary waves, refracted waves, seiche waves.
Shallow wavelets, where children like to play, and dangerous reef breaks, tamed by daredevil surfers. Mellow ripples and dramatic tsunamis.
Some caused by the friction between surface water and the wind. Others, by the gravitational pull on our planet of the Sun and the Moon.
These powerful surges of energy have now been immortalised in the new high jewellery capsule collection Déferlante by Chaumet.
The Déferlante (“wave” in French) collection consists of eight pieces which make up a parure: a tiara set with 1,600 brilliant-cut and step-cut diamonds; a necklace, using Chaumet’s signature fil-couteau technique, where stones appear as if they are floating; two rings (one transformable); two sets of earrings; a brooch; and a secret watch with a Swiss mechanical self-winding movement, which comes in a limited edition of three pieces.
Combinations of white diamonds of different shapes and sizes cascade down intricate settings of white gold. Bold angles and clean, sculptural lines generate the sensation of movement, the bubbling murmur of the foam, the sparkling joy of splattering surf, and the majestic realization of the fragility of us, humans, when faced with the forces of nature.
How many times have you found yourself mesmerized by the vastness of the sea, watching the horizon, catching the movement of the waves, losing track of time?
Déferlante by Chaumet is exactly that: graceful as the poetry, powerful as the surge, timeless as the World’s oceans.
