A French high jeweller better known for their ornate creations since its founding back in 1780, it would come as a surprise to most that Chaumet also has pieces that are more accessible yet no less beautiful. Take their Hortensia collection, for example. An imaginary garden made up of heart-stopping jewellery pieces that range from elaborate rings to delicate head ornaments (read: tiaras), these pieces will easily set you back by tens of thousands.
Then there are these, also part of the Hortensia collection but come with one less zero on the end. No less beautiful than her higher-priced siblings, it’s the workmanship that must shine in a piece so simple, a trio of rings that come in rose, yellow or white gold. Priced at SGD2400 for the first two and SGD2800 for the one in white gold, it’s the closest thing to quite literally wearing a garden of beautiful blooms on your finger. And with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, there’s no better time to head down yourself for a closer look.
