Chaumet ambassador Song Hye-kyo fronts the brand’s new Dentelle de Lumière tiara, showing why she’s the modern-day heir to its sparkling legacy

Hallyu queen Song Hye-kyo stuns while wearing Chaumet’s new Dentelle de Lumière tiara from its latest high jewellery collection. As one of South Korea’s most prominent stars and one of Asia’s most recognisable faces, Song brings sophistication and dignity to her work, and it's not hard to see why she's the ambassador for the brand. 

It’s also a change from the look and feel of previous campaigns which focused on simplicity and modernity. Here, Song is dressed in a lithe black dress that is both chic and elegant, and the ensemble is topped off with the Dentelle de Lumière tiara.

The tiara is paved with diamonds and is delicately lightweight. The design takes the lattice motif, an emblem of Chaumet since the Belle Époque period, and reinterprets it with a modern touch.

As the highlight of the collection, the tiara embodies Chaumet’s timeless aesthetic and showcases its signature fil-couteau technique.

Other than the tiara from the high jewellery collection, Song also wears Chaumet pieces from other collections. One of them is the Joséphine Aigrette Impériale necklace, a piece fit for royalty—in this case, South Korean royalty.

The centrepiece jewel is crafted with pear-shaped diamonds, and Song matches it with the Joséphine Splendeur Impériale solitaire ring, a crowning jewel for the finger.

Another pairing that Song wears is the house’s Promenades Imperiales necklace—which glitters with a Padparadscha sapphire and a diamond pendant—along with the Aube Printanière Solitaire ring.
