Since 1895, each and every little secret of the custom-made high jewellery has been passed down from father to son within the family de Grace.
After touring the world in search of the most beautiful stones to serve the jewellery Maisons of Place Vendôme, and to create unique jewels for prestigious customers, the Maison de Grace is founded in 1985.
To discover de Grace is then an invitation to discover the world of the Maison and the French know-how of its craftsmen, the selection of the most remarkable stones. De Grace creations represent simplicity, modernity and audaciousness: their inner soul mirrors the beauty and the majesty of the Woman, in an inextricable and spiritual interior connection.
Highlights from de Grace High Jewellery Collection – Claudia’s picks
The first piece which caught my attention is the Collier Cascade. Stemming from the Maison’s Naturalistic tradition, this collier evokes cascading light, taking us to a dreamy world. This is a unique creation, which has been designed and crafted in 4 months, with more than 300 hours of work.
De Grace also means colour blocking, and the Collier Grappe is an exquisite example, featuring an important cluster which repose gently on the skin, reverberating with flamboyant colours:
The Art Nouveau continues to strongly influence jewellery designers, and de Grace is no exception to this. The Collier Losange shows precise lines, a geometric spirit, perfect proportions. The star of this necklace is a losange-cut grey diamond, cut out of a rough stone of more than 100 carats found in Russia, and set into a necklace featuring brilliant-cut diamonds of exceptional quality:
De Grace once again lets Nature be a guide and source of inspiration for the Collier Paon, where different graded and varied sapphires imitate the peacock’s feathers:
Nature has been present as a sort of leit motiv since the Maison was founded in 1985. Here is then the reinterpretation of a delicate flower, the daisy, symbol of femininity and of love. Centred around a magnificent yellow diamond, the ring represents the daisy in the splendour of its flourishing:
Nature does not only mean Flora and Fauna, but also the emotional attraction of the Sea. Here is the Wave of Diamonds ring: a romantic plunge into the Ocean’s heart, this ring has black and white diamonds set in white and rose gold. An enveloping embrace, same as the waves of the sea:
