The Chaumet Hortensia jewellery range is fit for a queen

High horticulture

Chaumet tends to its glistening garden of jewels with their latest addition, the Hortensia Voie Lactée collection

The Parisian jeweller's refined Hortensia range honouring Empress Joséphine is ever blooming. Immortalising the hydrangea on rings, earrings and brooches by way of fluid curves, the Hortensia Voie Lactée marks six new jewellery creations to the enchanting collection.

In a medley of crisp blues and creamy whites, the exquisite selection harnesses the charm of a mystical garden fabricated from lustrous gems. The crown jewels — a high jewellery trio — exemplifies the maison as an esteemed jeweller: Canvases of white gold have been generously doused with diamonds in the hundreds apiece, and finished off with contrasting sprinkles of blue sapphires and cushion-cut tanzanites.

Hardly paling in comparison, the remaining three precious jewellery creations are floral beauties to behold. Seducing with an unparalled design intricacy that mirrors the grace of a hydrangea, it's a symphony of brilliance befitting of Empress Joséphine indeed. 

The Hortensia Voie Lactée is available at Chaumet boutiques.
