Wood, stones and precious metals make for a particularly interesting combination, and the big brands are certainly aware of this. Thanks to the creativity and know-how that has always characterized high jewelry, the most natural of the materials are being transformed into sophisticated details on one-of-a-kind jewels. With Sunlight Escape collection, Piaget offers Green Aurora earrings in sycamore and hornbeam, kindly paired with straw, rose gold, tourmalines and diamonds. Chaumet’s Trésor d’Afrique line features a very impressive bracelet in which ebony, rose gold and turquoise find a bold harmony. Finally, there’s Hemmerle, which loves to experiment with pairing different materials. For its 125th anniversary, it has created a bangle that combines silver, white gold, iron and diamonds with intense ebony.
