Between North Africa and the Middle East, the Red Sea is home to submarine fauna of rare beauty. Diamond bubbles, cascades of pearls and flamboyant shellfish together suggest the sun’s glow on the glittering waves.
Inspiring both dreams and a sense of wonder, this flamboyant shellfish is a poetic theater with a treasure nestling at its heart. Edged with rows of buff-topped diamonds, its two shells arouse the curiosity, while their curved surface of Mystery Set rubies – devoid of any visible setting – attract the gaze with their intense color. An ingenious mechanism on the body of the ring enables this precious case to be opened, revealing a gradation of blue and mauve sapphires and a star of sparkling diamonds.
Kizil – which means red in Turkish and once referred to the western cardinal point – is the name of this long necklace that offers a sparkling interpretation of a sunset on the sea. Its rows of white cultured pearls are punctuated by 15 square-cut rubellites of a pinkish purple, weighing a total of 45.09 carats. Remarkably matched, they contrast with the softness of the pearls and mother-of-pearl, alongside jewelry motifs that combine different diamond cuts (round, square, baguette and pear) in a glittering architecture. The association of forms and hues – endowing the piece with relief and vivacity – is accentuated by the cascade of five rubellite drops that adorns a central motif of Art Deco inspiration. An illustration of the Maison’s High Jewelry savoir-faire, the long necklace can be transformed into a short necklace or bracelets of majestic elegance.
Immediately captivating the gaze, the Goutte de spinelle ring combines dynamic movement with intense stones. With the surge of a wave, sparkling rows of diamonds and baguette-cut rubies wrap themselves around a 14.34-carat spinel with an elegant pear shape. A cavalcade of glittering bubbles highlights the curves and color of this central stone. From a family of gems renowned for their vivid brilliance, their hardness and their extraordinary range of tones, it displays an Indian pink of effervescent luster.
