Based in Paris and established in 1780, Chaumet brings centuries of experience to its jewellery making, which from the beginning was the very essence of haute joaillerie. Still available today, its legendary tiaras are an enduring symbol of the company's elegant legacy. That's not to say the company hasn't moved with the times, though - its new Les Liens yellow gold and diamond ring is its most playful design yet. X marks the spot where gold and diamonds converge on a chunky yellow gold band, which is sweetly asymmetrical and stops just short of joining. In the small space left, a yellow gold cross has been overlaid, set with 12 brilliant-cut diamonds. The kind of ring that could just as easily be worn to the office as on a night out, it's the perfect gift for ladies who love their statement jewellery to come with a little French polish.
