The high jewellery workshop follows the sketches by the creation studio right down to the smallest detail. It is important for the workshop to follow the brief because the drawing has been finalised based on aesthetic reasons and business-related calculations. Above, we see the various diamond-set white gold components of the Vol Suspendu necklace set against the original blueprint.
Besides the usual craftsmen’s tables, where metalwork, polishing and gem-setting are done, we spotted an unusual workstation in the workshop. A lady sat quietly by the window with a bunch of cotton threads, repeating the same motion over and over again. Our guide explained that she was using the threads to polish the tiny and obscure corners of the creations, which would have been impossible with regular polishing tools. Such is the house’s dedication to achieving superlative quality.
