BACK­GROUND

CLAIRE DÉVÉ-RAKOFF started de­sign­ing jew­ellery when she was five years old, mak­ing bracelets out of shells. She has been busy with her hands ever since, launch­ing her own jew­ellery and fash­ion ac­ces­sory de­sign company when she was just 21. After grad­u­at­ing from the Fine Arts School of Mont­pel­lier, she started col­lab­o­rat­ing with renowned de­sign­ers and fine jew­ellery com­pa­nies un­til 2012, when she was ap­pointed as Chaumet’s cre­ative di­rec­tor.

DE­SIGN SIG­NA­TURE IN­SPIRED BY NA­TURE and her fre­quent trav­els, Dévé-rakoff de­vel­oped her first line for Chaumet in 2013, a col­lec­tion of time­pieces, called At­trape-moi… Si Tu M’aimes, fea­tur­ing but­ter­flies, drag­on­flies and plants. This was fol­lowed by a 24-piece high jew­ellery col­lec­tion ded­i­cated to the horten­sia flower. Dévé-rakoff says she loves to de­sign rings be­cause of the three-di­men­sional de­tails that they re­quire.

LAT­EST COL­LEC­TION THIS YEAR, Dévé-rakoff presents Lu­mières d’eau, a col­lec­tion por­tray­ing dif­fer­ent forms of wa­ter. The jew­ellery sets are in­spired by ice­bergs, mon­soons in Asia and sun­sets at the beach. One of the high­lights of the col­lec­tion is a neck­lace with a 16-carat Paraiba tour­ma­line.

RING AROUND Horten­sia ring in white gold with di­a­monds, sap­phires and lapis lazuli; Parure 1 sap­phire ring from the Lu­mières d’eau col­lec­tion
