In his beautiful and luminous showroom, Chris displays some of his latest creations. On the side – and delicately hanging around the neck of a mannequin – we find Orleans: a necklace of bobbin-lace gold, diamonds and South Sea keshi, all revolving around a splendid stone of crimson coral. We turn around and away from the mannequin, until our eye is caught by a blue spark, drawing us close from aside. In the display, we find Santa Maria: earrings of 18 carat red and white gold on which a beautiful, pear-shaped aquamarine sways lazily under a nimble connection of diamond.
