A comprehensive volume celebrating jewellery, featuring a broad range of artistic and intellectual perspectives.
This volume offers unique and previously unpublished insight on the world of jewellery. Calling upon specialists from every creative and intellectual discipline—artist or composer, botanist or perfumer, novelist or philosopher—this reference volume examines jewellery in all of its different facets, from anthropology to philosophy to art. Alongside its sensitive and cultural insight into the art of jewellery making, this volume is richly illustrated with drawings and archives from Maison Chaumet and photographs by Simone Cavadini and Julia Hetta that offer new perspectives on the jewel.
This tome has been published in collaboration with Maison Chaumet.
