In our latest video Maria Doulton travels to Paris to visit the gem department at Louis Vuitton

Maria Doulton visits the gem department at Louis Vuitton in Paris and discovers how each jewel starts life, inspired by unusual precious stones.

20 October 2013

I travelled to Paris to visit Louis Vuitton's gem department in Place Vendôme. Here, I discovered how each jewel starts its life, inspired by one of these surprising stones. And don't expect the traditional line-up of gemstones. Rare, top-quality precious coloured stones in the most unusual shades are the name of the game here.

While I was there I spoke to Hamdi Chatti, Vice President of Watches and Jewellery, about Louis Vuitton's unusual approach to creating jewels, which are shaking up our concept of what high jewellery can look like.
