Chaumet's High Jewellery Collection Focuses on Iconic Ribbon Motif

17 February 2017

By Tricia Oliveira

Chaumet's latest high-jewellery collection entitled 'Insolence' focuses on the house’s iconic ribbon motif which symbolises the bond of love.

A diamond ribbon and a rose gold rope chain that meets to intertwine, tie and untie in a whimsical game of duality. A classic at first glance, this jewellery tale reveals a free-spirit. The bow-knot, on the verge of being undone, evokes light-hearted transgressions.

Spontaneous and carefree, the “Insolence” collection celebrates a femininity which is sensual, hedonistic, and ready to embrace all of life's pleasures.

Inspired by the ribbons dear to Queen Marie-Antoinette and the jewelled garlands of the Belle Epoque, Chaumet's bow-knots have always symbolised the bonds of love and affection in the tradition of sentimental jewellery. The eternal tie between two beings, the knot that is carefully tied and presented to the world claims a pledge of serene love.

Supple and nonchalantly woven, it is easily undone in intimacy, with 'Insolence'.

Hanging from the picture rails of an ephemeral art gallery installed at 12 place Vendôme, Karen Collins's shots of the collection express the femininity and sensuality of the jewellery pieces.

The photographer plays with the theme of 'Insolence' as a second nature, in a contemporary reference to the Beaux Arts masters of the 18th century or the great avant-gardists of art photography such as Man Ray and Brassaï.
