As a tribute to Empress Josephine, a radiant woman who was passionate about the beauty of flowers and the magic of gardens.
The Hortensia Collection by CHAUMET lends profusion of color and generosity of form to both jewellery and precious jewellery pieces. The twinkle of diamonds overlap and interplay like their movement in the wild, flora captured with artistry of metal and gemstones, their embrace frozen in place to be eternally enjoyed. Imagine… the clear sky of a summer night, a diffused glow descends from the sky to settle on the flowers of a garden sleeping in a shimmering haze. The pink of the dawn is followed by the milky clarity of starlight offering the “Hortensia” of the “Gardens” collection the freshness of a bluish white.
Such an enchanting collection of jewelry celebrating the beauty of flowers. Each piece is a pleasure to gaze at, the eye dances across the petals, the flowers milky color adds an ethereal touch to the diamonds and gemstones.
