Chaumet’s latest jewellery collection pays tribute to the humble bee. Long associated with hard work and strength, the new Bee My Love creations feature elegant interpretations of honeycomb in a simple, playful aesthetic imbued with an organic sense of movement.
For its new designs, Chaumet introduces an exclusive new innovation, the Taille Impératrice, a unique diamond cut that replicates the honeycomb texture through hexagonal shapes, creating a sense of movement in line with the figure of eight pattern of a worker bee’s flight.
The Taille Impératrice diamond cut has 88 facets. Not only does this innovative design catch the eye with its star-shaped crown, but the number of facets has also been deliberately selected as it is both symbolic of luck and fortune, and a nod to the infinity loop that a worker bee’s dance draws.
The bee motif is meticulously channelled both in the design and in its construction. The Y necklace—an asymmetrical pavé piece that continues the maison’s tradition of negligée necklaces—features an intricate connection of dainty hexagonal gold pieces. The Y necklace is set with two Taille Impératrice-shaped diamonds of approximately 1.5 carats and 0.5 carat with brilliant-cut diamonds. The pavé brilliant-cut diamond rings and bracelets—available in both white and rose gold—are studded with the maison’s innovative diamond detailing.
