Blue and calm yet valiant and powerful, water has more than just one facet. Portraying the source of life in its full glory, the new collection by Chaumet is dedicated to every wave in the sea. Named Ondes et Merveilles, which translates to ‘waves and wonders’, this high end jewelry collection takes its wearer on a journey through the deepest and bluest of waters.

Testimony to the maison’s unique style, the ‘On the Water’s Surface’, ‘Gulfstream’ and ‘Breaking Wave’ jewelry lines start as a ripple in the vast sea as a true ballad to the song of life. The ‘On the Waters’ collection effortlessly arrests the fierce strokes of the sea, one precious stone at a time. Weaved into existence by floating diamonds attached to detachable necklaces, head jewels that transform into brooches, and pendant earrings and rings, the diamonds and white gold used in Chaumet’s latest launch work together beautifully to create a line of must-haves.

Borrowing its name from the warm Atlantic wind is the ‘Gulfstream’ line, which effortlessly captures lucid sentiments, subtly changing from warm to cold. From green and blue to orange and blue, the clever color combinations of this section of jewelry pay tribute to the Maison’s love of vibrant hues. This alluring set features two necklaces, alongside two rings, a bracelet, a brooch, and earrings. Lastly, blending the innate sophistication and elegance of Chaumet’s creations with their bold character, ‘Breaking Wave’ accomplishes the task of capturing the beauty of crashing waves in full motion to bring life to creations made entirely of white gold and diamonds.

With each stone in this collection comes a different story that highlights the subtle nuances of the sea, and together, the new launch conveys a strong emotion arising from an encounter with the maison’s gemologists. Through the Ondes et Merveilles de Chaumet collection, the artisans of the 12 Vendôme workshop are yet again paying tribute to the jewelry craftsmanship of which they are both the keepers and the transmitters. Their finesse, which is illustrated in the art of capturing these nautical facets in all their manifestations, expands the close ties uniting the Maison to the sea.
