Quintessence of the ritz Necklace Tasaki likeab

For this second edition between the glossy lifestyle « Honoré Magazine » and Like A B, we are pleased to reveal the ‘making of’ this High jewellery photo shoot.

Behind the scene High Jewellery photo shoot

The artistic direction, led Like A B, was inspired by projected shadows and led to the collaboration with the famous paper artist Mathilde Nivet.

Place Vendôme and it’s architecture is a place of wonder and symbol of French excellence. It only seemed natural to explore this emblematic place through paper art, in order to highlight the boldness of the fine jewellery pieces selected for this still life photo shoot.

The arrival of new international companies such as the Japanese Tasaki or the notorious English David Morris, has brought newness to Place Vendôme and it’s architecture. Alongside Maisons like Chopard, Chanel and Harry Winston, there is a dream-like quality in the air of champagne parties and excellence.

A game of shadows, Place Vendôme’s buildings cast shadows on jewels, whilst certain jewels project light and shadow on the buildings. When looked upon up close, a jewel can reveal itself to be like a miniature piece of architecture that Like a b wanted to magnify, raise the viewers’ attention to artistic detail. Beautiful on it’s own, but reveals it’s magnificence against skin, on a moving body, with a person’s personality. Place Vendôme is a jewel on it’s own and certainly knows how to make one.

For this photo shoot, the diamond and sapphire necklace and earrings selected from the Japanese brand Tasaki are named “The Quintessence of Ritz Paris” ; inspired by the holiday tradition that was held Place Vendôme. It is also a bit of a wink for Tasaki who’s shop is located at the Ritz in Paris. They created this special collection to celebrate their coming to France and to one of the most beautiful squares in the world…
