archetypal diamondcufflinks


Nothing is lost, everything is transformed.

Samuel Gassmann went to the Antwerp diamond dealers to see if there were any old diamonds in their drawers, in their memories, waiting for him.

He came back, with, in the hollow of small folded papers, fragments of a bygone era. Stones from past centuries that have not met their destiny, all different, uncalibrated, worked by hand without the intervention of a laser, with incongruous breeches (flat at the end, the pointed ones came as the equipment was perfected). All of them without any real value and yet, they have become rare objects; paradoxically precious pieces.

With his treasure in his pocket, made up of rose-cut diamonds (which he knows well, his collection of wedding rings is made up of them), he is going to make them live on his jewellery, like little nuggets that have come incognito. Slipped onto each end of a bracelet, visible breech... Diamonds extracted from time and time alone, pure in this.

This pair of Archetype diamond cufflinks is made from 16 old rose cut diamonds and 5 micron vermeil.

Also available at Bon Marché, Paris.
