Marie-Hélène de Taillac's Paraiba tourmalines

The French designer Marie-Hélène de Taillac offers us a series of unique rings decorated with Paraiba tourmalines of an exceptional lagoon blue-green. She was busy making them a year ago when I visited her workshop at the Gem Palace (one of the oldest Indian jewelers) in Jaipur. We take a private tour.
