Chaumet launches stackable bee-inspired engagement rings

The bumblebee is the inspiration behind Chaumet's new engagement rings, part of the pretty Bee My Love collection of stackable jewels.

The plight of the bumblebee has been a hot topic of late, and in showing support for these humble creatures, many bee-inspired designs have emerged this year. Chaumet the Parisian jewellery house has long been associated with the buzzing insect and has just launched new engagement rings as part of its Bee My Love collection, inspired by the geometry of the hive.

Marie-Etienne Nitot, who founded what we now know as Chaumet in 1780, was jeweller to Napoleon Bonaparte, whose emblem was a bee, a symbol of industry. And so the bee has become a Chaumet icon that emerges through many of its designs. Earlier this year, the fine jeweller released new Attrape-moi watches, which feature a spider and bee beneath their dials, while honeycomb-inspired settings have been seen on bracelets, necklaces, tiaras and, now, these pretty Bee My Love rings.

The new engagement rings each bear the hexagonal shape that distinguishes the Bee My Love collection, available in white, yellow and pink gold and topped with a solitaire diamond. Their unusual interlocking design makes them perfect for wearing alone or stacked up together. Mix and match with different Bee My Love gold bands, with or without diamonds, for a completely individual look.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
