RAPHAELE CANOT

She may look a bit like Au­drey Hep­burn, but Raphaele Canot’s di­a­mond-based jew­ellery couldn’t be more dif­fer­ent from Holly Go­lightly’s favourite brand. Her sig­na­ture is to free di­a­monds from their tra­di­tional set­tings and in­stead laser pierce them to the bracelet or ear­rings so it looks like they are hang­ing on an in­vis­i­ble thread—the ef­fect is like be­ing con­fronted by a shard of light. One of the most rule-break­ing jewellers around, Canot in­jects a touch of French in­sou­ciance into all her pieces. Charlotte Dauphin de la Rochefou­cauld (yes, she’s French) grew tired of all her friends sport­ing un­o­rig­i­nal en­gage­ment rings, pen­dants and ear­rings. So to help them be a lit­tle more in­ter­est­ing, she launched Mai­son Dauphin, a brand fo­cused on vis­ually ar­rest­ing min­i­mal­ism. Think golden ear cages, dou­ble rings that bal­ance 3D geo­met­ric forms be­tween the fin­gers and dis­rup­tive en­gage­ment rings made from blue gold and black di­a­monds.
