What do you get when combine the finest haute joaillerie craftsmanship with imperial inspiration taken from famous French empresses Joséphine and Marie-Louise? Why, it's none other than the limited edition L'Epi de Blé ring from Chaumet, jeweller to the royals. A grand manifesto of fine jewellery making-meets-sculptural beauty, the artisanal creation weaves the symbolic wheat — representative of renewal, abundance and fertility — into an intricate yellow gold band studded with a multitude of diamonds.

Influenced by the antique ronde-bosse engraving technique, each wheat grain and stalk is traced with a subtle texture for a stunning voluminous depth that sits against the skin with a lit brilliance. Like a halo of warmth enveloping the fingers, the brushed gold finish lends the Chaumet L'Epi de Blé ring a bold surrealism that is indeed fit for a queen.

The L'Epi de Blé ring is available at Chaumet boutiques, limited to 40 pieces.
