When Montblanc launched its very own diamond cut, shaped like the brand’s star emblem, it demonstrated creativity and a genuine passion for Haute Joaillerie. The most recent design to come from Montblanc’s ateliers is the patented Montblanc Cabochon, an original re-interpretation of the classic stone cut. The Cabochon de Montblanc Collection is made up of colourful pieces using an exciting assortment of semi-precious and hard stones, each in the shape of the Montblanc Star.
Montblanc’s master jewellers have designed pieces that remain true to the tradition of the Cabochon: the stones are highly polished and cut convexly without facets. However, the traditionally round or oval shape of the Cabochon stone has been replaced with the Montblanc Star, reminiscent of the snowy peak on Europe’s highest mountain. Demonstrating its versatility and appeal to both women and men, the Cabochon Cut features in both ladies’ and men’s jewellery assortments. Exploring the power and meaning conveyed by stones particularly prevalent in Eastern cultures, Montblanc has selected stones that are recognized for their beneficial properties. The energy conveyed by these stones is said to carry a number of benefits, these vary from good health and inner strength to confidence, prosperity and success. Each stone has a story to tell.
For the Ladies’ Fine Jewellery Collection, the Cabochon Cut is featured on luxurious red gold settings, becoming true statement pieces with the use of semi-precious stones in two major colour directions. The intense and passionate red and pink stones such as Rhodolite Garnet and Carnelian are synonymous with confidence, power and passion. On the other hand, the dreamlike and soothing variations white and blue stones such as Milky Quartz, Aquamarine, Iolite and Amethyst are synonymous with contentment, humility or strength.
The Men’s Contemporary Collection welcomes the Cabochon Cut in a bolder treatment with hard stones that reflect masculinity, strength and confidence. The stainless steel cuff links from this Collection feature deep black Onyx and Sodalith, a stone with grey and beige inclusions. For a softer look, the discerning man can opt for cuff links carrying either quartz crystal or rose quartz – both stones recognized for bringing peace of mind and inner balance. www.montblanc.com
