Dentelle de Perles
These diamond, pearl and sapphire mosaic jewels are inspired by the lacy muslin, silk and petit point embroidered white gowns which were de rigueur for society ladies, as they were for Parisian Belle Époque beauties, during the summer months. The cornflower blue cabochon sapphires are the colour of deep blue field flowers that flourished in the Russian countryside. During the summer months, garden festivities were held in country dachas, and the endless twilight of the White Nights lent parties an air of enchantment and expectation.
