Jewelry as a Talisman
The inspiration behind this collection was the earth, when it was not yet understood to be spherical, but was perceived as a disc resting on water. The collection has been designed all in circles, like a two-dimensional vision. The cardinal points are marked by four diamonds around the stone. Very subtle lines emphasize the lightness and simplicity of the jewels comprising the Cardinale collection. They also have great sensuality thanks to the soft lavender jade, the milky hues of the moonstone and the misty tones of chalcedony, calling to mind the light filtering through a sea haze.
The four cardinal diamonds recall François Garaude's crossing of the Atlantic, when his only point of reference in the vast ocean was his compass.
