Clare Viola Jewelry and L’Artisan Event : Jewelry for Scents


Having seen the Parisian designer Clare Viola’s jewelry before, I feel compelled to quote the English novelist George Eliot, “These gems have life in them: their colors speak, say what words fail of.” L’Artisan Parfumeur shall explore the intrinsic and emotional link between being adorned by jewel and by perfume during their event “Jewelry for Scents.”

“Each piece plays with textures, light, colors and shapes to create a unique emotion. Many pieces in the collection were inspired by such L’Artisan classics as La Chasse Aux Papillons, Mure et Musc, Timbuktu , Dzing! and Voleur de Roses. Claire Viola herself will be present to talk about her inspirations and designs. Join us this Friday, November 28, at the flagship L’Artisan boutique in New York , 1110 Madison Ave , from 10am to 7pm” (from L’Artisan newsletter.)

Clare Viola website offers a glimpse of her gorgeous pieces, such as Kings Valley from Precious Wood collection, which is my coveted gem. Pictured above is Opera Garnier, from Neck Poetry collection.
