Confidence in style translates into Chaumet’s latest collection “Insolence”

Behind the eye of Karen Collins, a New-York based photographer, Chaumet reveals its latest collection ‘Insolence’. Paying tribute to jewelry and photography at the same time, Chaumet twists the traditional bow into a wanna-own design.

Famously linked to aristocracies such as Queen Marie-Antoinette and Queen Elizabeth I, the bow design in jewelry, but most specifically at Chaumet, is a typical design, interpreted in many ways … rings, brooches, necklaces or even studs and drop earrings.  A jewelry bow has been over the centuries a symbol of love and femininity.

This year, Chaumet added a whimsical touch of naughtiness, sexiness and spontaneity with its loose knots in rose gold rope entwined with a diamond ribbon. The bow, whether tied or untied, arouses a gush of airy indiscretion in a game of two-some. Like a beautiful painting, it envisioned a graceful union that could unravel a whole new level of intimacy which is about to abloom behind closed doors. The ‘Insolence’ collection celebrates a women’s sensuality and the liberation to embrace all of life’s pleasures.

Chaumet chose Karen Collins to magically capture the new collection. The American and New-York based photographer plays with naked bodies in the shadows to display the 10 pieces of high-jewelry…as a way to envision through her own eye the notion of sensual pleasure of ‘Insolence’. Insolence by Chaumet is a collection playing on duality mixing white and pink gold altogether.

Six of these pieces form as part of the core collection consisting of earrings, pendants, bracelets, rings and a delicate brooch priced at a few thousands of euros.  The other four are high jewelry with more intricate designs fetching sometimes several hundred thousands of euros. Some diamonds weighting over 1 carat are daintily set using Chaumet’s beloved ‘blade setting’ technique surrounded by brilliant-cut diamonds encrusting the entire surface of the bows.
