That intention is personified by the Multi Galons suite, which is headlined by a standout necklace of 10 strands, each a single set with unique cuts and motifs, as four metals – yellow, pink, white gold and platinum – carry additional luxe and distinction. A strand of comfortable florets crafted from pear and good-slice diamonds juxtaposes a herringbone pattern of baguette-cut diamonds. More layers appear courtesy of angled, staggered strands fashioned from a smörgåsbord of extravagant cuts – spherical, sq. and princess among them. A matching bracelet in a criss-cross pattern gives a more graphic interpretation, below with a few unique sorts of gold, in which the very same bejewelled threads envelop a traditional oval-reduce diamond. If de Castellane’s past collections observed couture specifics as a touchpoint, Galons mashes up a entire universe with luxurious, ornamental element.
Paradoxically, it is de Castellane’s signature use of asymmetry that is the thread holding the numerous motifs with each other. “In this selection, asymmetry flirts with repetitive patterns,” she states. “The tremendous selection of stones – in marquise, sq., round or oval cuts – authorized me to fluctuate styles and patterns, creating a disordered array.” Cue the Multi Galons earrings, exactly where a charming trio of florets dangle from sharp geometric clusters of stones that centre on two oval-slice diamonds. Meanwhile yet another mismatched design sets the florets in just one earring, the other featuring art deco-like step-pattern baguettes, the pair conjoined by the basic hoop variety.
