自然萬象 寫意世間 | 探索CHAUMET的海底珍寶、Cartier的萬物之美!

TRANSLATION | Eugenia Yang

周遊列國,觀察大千世界,從萬丈深海到九霄雲天,超越千里之外的視野範疇,取決了一個人的心有多寬闊,大至頭頂天河外的瀰漫星雲,小至腳底青苔上的剔透露珠,從自然萬象汲取靈感,以藝術形態和精湛工藝呈現異乎尋常的美,斑斕彩寶與粲煥鑽石便於此賦予了無盡生命。

From deep diving under the ocean to soaring above the clouds, the scope of our vision is dependent on how big our heart is. Whether it’s something as huge as nebulae in the Milky Way or as small as dewdrops on the moss, we never stop drawing inspiration from the wonders of nature. Through different artistic concepts and impeccable craftsmanship, the colorful gemstones and brilliant diamonds are given a new life, showcasing an exceptional beauty that conforms to no limitation.

汪洋謬思

法國珠寶世家 CHAUMET 首次推出以「海洋」作為貫穿全系列的 Ondes & Merveilles de Chaumet 波瀾燦景頂級珠寶,透過抽象化與具象化的詮釋,從海平面、俯瞰海岸、潛入海底等多重視角,探索孕育地球生命的起源。Déferlante 浪濤系列頂級珠寶項鏈,忠實捕捉了波濤洶湧當下,海浪相互拍打造成的激昂浪花,排列鑽石的精妙切割與刻面,賦予了作品靈動十足的璀璨光芒。舖鑲鑽石的倒 V 型波浪完好呈現了靜謐海平面,À Fleur d’Eau 碧波之華系列選用托高爪鑲的馬眼型鑽石,加強光影折射的效果,於覆蓋與穿透之間,締造寧靜致遠之氣息。使人一見鐘情的 Gulfstream 湍急灣流系列,靈感取自墨西哥灣流的冷暖交界,以祖母綠與藍寶石呈現兩股水流的匯合交融,更靈巧應用不同切割的寶石刻面,以及鑲嵌底座的曲線角度,使光線流淌而入,重現深海汪洋中的繁盛生命力。

海底珍寶

海邊口耳相傳的人魚童話,總擁有一層說不清、道不明的神秘面紗。CHAUMET 特以 Chant de Sirènes 人魚之歌描摹悠遊海底的迷人姿態,藉迴旋流暢的線條、鱗紋鑲嵌、多彩的灰綠色大溪地珍珠以及帕拉伊巴碧璽的藍綠色彩,交織出宛如人魚般的致命魅惑。除了欣賞蔚藍之美,若以上帝視角俯瞰沙灘會是什麼模樣?Sous le Soleil 艷陽之下系列給予了最佳解答,將甜美的紅、綠色調寶石與手工鐫刻黃金搭配,不禁使人聯想起遮陽傘下愜意的度假時分。另一吸睛的 Chasse aux Trésors 海底尋寶系列,則帶領觀者躍入多彩的海底世界,以 18K 白金、玫瑰金以及鈦金屬鑲嵌珊瑚、碧璽、拓帕石、錳鋁榴石等,交織出大自然動植物的豐富變化,每件皆是深藏海底的奇珍異寶。而遠洋水手身上的刺青也成了創作來源,應用金雕、琺瑯、寶石鑲嵌、雕刻寶石等手法,精雕出船錨、燈塔、鴿子、瓶中信、信天翁等圖樣,其背後堆疊的豐沛情感,娓娓道出 Encres 墨色印記系列所蘊含的精彩航海篇章。

天地精粹

「目之所及,萬物皆美。」為 Cartier BEAUTÉS DU MONDE 頂級珠寶系列中欲傳遞的美妙訊息,從大自然中的生物、礦石元素以及世界文化中取材,玩轉各色寶石,造就臻美之作,喜獻卓越不凡的現代版珍品櫃。以蟬鳴聲為名的 CYMBALE 紅寶石項鍊,不僅揉合象徵意義、纖細優雅與熠熠色澤,更靈巧運用白水晶呈現蟬翼的透明晶透,點綴小巧紅寶石與縞瑪瑙,進而烘托鑽石主石的瑰麗大器。遊走在珍貴的珊瑚珠景致,RED RUACANA 珊瑚項鍊精彩闡述了現代主義下的美豹輪廓,將精緻鑽石、祖母綠與縞瑪瑙作為點綴,使鑲嵌在墜飾上的梨形祖母綠更為鮮明,強烈的紅、綠、黑配色點出 Cartier 一個世紀以來的經典之作。另一吸睛作品非 TIGRE PERCHE 祖母綠老虎胸針莫屬,一隻大貓立於滿鑲鑽石的黃金樹枝上棲息,凝視著一顆來自哥倫比亞的稜紋祖母綠珠,其謹慎專注的神情刻畫得唯妙唯肖,縞瑪瑙條紋的黃褐色皮毛、堅定的祖母綠虎眼與強勁的四肢動作為此備添活力。始終致力於保存品牌歷史與文化的 Cartier,自「卡地亞古董珍藏系列」中便可見一班,歷經精心鑑定與修復,重新回到市場,不僅具備時光與榮耀的傳承,更是收藏家趨之若鶩的珍品寶藏。

微縮寰宇

萬物之美啟迪了 Cartier 推出由七款戒指組成的膠囊系列,全面呈現經典創作主題:幾何、造型、動感、色彩對比以及動植物,其靈感可細溯至古生物畫冊的甲殼、《荷馬史詩》中的神話生靈海蛇、菊石化石、海怪、行星、礦物晶體及中式積木,於各色寶石的映襯下,散發迷人魅力。每款戒指猶如一個微縮世界,濃縮大千萬象,進而探究 Cartier 風格之群像。擅於運用抽象手法,將萬物之形暗寓其內,也是本次值得細品的精髓,斑斕絢麗的 APATURA 項鍊令蝴蝶意象呼之欲出,運用鮮豔的色彩組合,勾勒出對比鮮明的矚目扇形墜飾,垂直懸掛於項鍊下方,看似硬朗,卻極其柔韌靈活。將綠鬣蜥富有紋理和立體感的皮膚化作絢麗珠寶,利用一系列鋪鑲圓形明亮式切割鑽石的三角形圖案間的鏤空設計,營造虛實對比效果,愈加凸顯鬣蜥皮的粒面質感,其隱而不顯的波狀鑲座為關鍵所在,而三角形圖案與三顆產自哥倫比亞、共重 43.45 克拉的華美祖母綠刻面相映成趣。擁有耀眼光澤的錫蘭藍寶石,精巧捕捉了彩蛇的豐沛活力、蜿蜒身姿和將獵物緊緊纏繞的習性,並將此命名為 WATER ASPIS,藉鉸接結構使項鍊活動自如,更顯活靈活現之姿。

Muses of the Ocean

For the first time, Chaumet dedicates an entire High Jewelry collection to the sea and introduces Ondes et Merveilles de Chaumet. Through abstract and figurative interpretations, the collection explores the origin of life on earth through the sea in all its manifestation—the water’s surface, shores from above, deep dives and more. The Déferlante necklace captures the waves in motion through the signature fil-couteau technique and diamonds of various cuts and appears with this hypnotizing fluidity. On the contrary, the À Fleur d’Eau creations majestically convey the moment when the ocean is at peace. With a selection of marquise-cut diamonds, this capsule collection recreates the sparkling reflections between coverage and transparency to evoke the tranquility of the water. Lastly, the Gulfstream set flows just like love at first sight. Inspired by the Gulf Stream, it presents the place where cold and warm currents meet through the emeralds and sapphires. The use of diamonds in different cuts and curved angles of the shank cleverly allows the light to flow in, recreating the vitality of the deep ocean. 

Treasures Under the Sea 

Whenever we hear about the myths of mermaids, there’s always something inexplicably mesmerizing. Capturing their charming, seductive silhouettes, the Chant de Sirènes set pays tribute to these mystical muses through interwoven lines, scale-like settings and colorful gemstones, such as the Paraiba tourmalines and Tahitian pearls. Besides enjoying the beauty of the azure, what if we were able to see the beaches from God’s view? The Sous le Soleil creations have the answer to our imagination. Bringing together red and green-toned gemstones and hand-engraved yellow gold, it reminds us of the playful, relaxing time enjoyed on the beach. Another gem of the collection, the Chasse aux Trésors set takes us on a deep dive into the magnificent ocean. Pairing 18K white and rose gold with titanium inlaid coral, tsavorite, tourmaline, mandarin garnets and more, the creations transcend into exotic treasures hidden deep under the sea, interweaving the rich variations of nature’s flora and fauna. And how could we pay our tribute to the sea without its sailors? Enriched with emotions, the Encres brooches playfully recreate sailors’ tattoos using gold engravings, enamel decorations and gemstone inlays. From elements like anchors, lighthouses, sea gulls, bottled letters and albatrosses, the capsule collection embarks on a spectacular sailing journey.

Essence of Nature 

“As far as the eye can see, everything is beautiful”—a message delivered by Cartier’s Beautés du Monde High Jewelry collection. Drawing from creatures in nature, mineral elements and cultures of the world, the collection plays with different gemstones to create jewelry pieces of extraordinary beauty. Inspired by the ciacada’s song, the Cymbale necklace not only weaves together symbolism and elegance, but also recreates the translucency of the cicada’s wings with rock crystals. The gems are embellished with oval rubies and onyx to elevate the grandness of the center stone. Celebrating the beauty of coral reefs, the Red Raucana necklace perfectly captures the silhouette of the jaguar. Accent with diamonds, emerald and onyx, the pear-cut emerald adorned pendant is elevated, the intense red, green and black color scheme bringing Cartier’s century-old classic to life. Another worth mentioning piece from the collection is the Tigre Perche brooch—a large cat perched on a diamond-studded gold branch gazing at a prismatic Colombian emerald bead with an intensely focused expression. Its onyx-striped tawny fur, steady emerald tiger eyes and sturdy limb movements bring the majestic beast to life. Ever since the Cartier Tradition High Jewelry collection, the French jewelry house has been dedicated to preserving the culture and history of the brand. After careful identification and restoration, the collection has returned to the market with a legacy of time and glory and will definitely become a sought-after treasure for elite collectors. 

A Microscopic Universe 

The beauty of the world has inspired Cartier to introduce its capsule collection consisting of seven rings. Ranging from the depths of the ocean to the far reaches of the sky, it draws inspiration from the infinite creations of mother nature—carapaces that can be found in ancient biology books, chimeras from Homer’s epic poems, ammonite fossils, sea monsters, constellations, geological crystallizations or even Chinese puzzles. Each a miniature world of its own, the rings capture the extraordinary creativity of the universe. Also a tribute to nature’s wonders, the Apatura necklace focuses on a naturalistic motif—the butterfly. In a combination of bright colors, the necklace features an eye-catching fan-shaped pendant that appears to be sturdy but is actually agile with fluidity. Meanwhile, Cartier turns the skin of the green iguana into its Iwana necklace. With a selection of round, brilliant-cut diamonds weaved into the openwork triangular motifs, it creates a contrast between the concrete and abstract, which further intensifies the texture and dimension of the iguana’s skin. At its center lies three uniquely-shaped Colombian emeralds, weighing 43.45 carats, with its wave-like setting being the key to its flexibility. Lastly, the Water Aspis necklace acutely captures the voluptuous charm of the hypnotic snake with the glistening Ceylon sapphires. Its articulated structure allows the piece to be incredibly flexible, just like its muse.
