Burins, gravers, burnishers, small pointed blades with wooden handles – these are the engraver’s tools that bear witness to the secular roots of the oldest form of decorative art used to embellish the most exceptional pieces. The skillful hands of experts, gold and silver raw materials are transformed into a work of art, animated by the play of light. Between copperplate, bas- relief, or embossing, the surfaces patiently accumulate the details of the design, offering exceptional areas for expression.
The character lines of the shell, the scarab’s silhouette, and arrangement of surfaces and edges, revealed by exceptional light, provide the structure for this beautifully modern piece. The carefully designed shapes generate rhythm and volume, which generate extraordinary levels of French craftsmanship.
The intricate carving work on the scarab’s surface evokes both a high brilliance and the contrast with the gently polished finished of gold and silver. The scarab’s shell, finely engraved on silver, gold or rose gold, provides a sequence and character. The lightness of the grooves, superbly executed, realized in the finest materials, produces an area that generate life.
The very delicate details of the antennae and legs are a work of ultimate artistry, with the final objective being a beautiful reflection of light, lending an almost magical brilliance to the material. A balance between the modernity of the shape, the benevolence of the design, the finesse of the details, and the spirit of the brand celebrates a jeweler’s ultimate creation.
The rose gold design showcases a diamond in the center of the scarab’s shell. This full‐cut diamond brings an additional stroke of light and confers a magnificent sophistication on the insect. Place Vendome jewelers enjoy a worldwide reputation for their expertise and creativity. The elite diamond is surrounded by a grain setting – a setting formed by tiny details in gold relief.
A science of precision, as well as an art, the setting and its scarab transcend creations by harnessing the imagination and poetry of the artist’s crafts.
