Céline Daoust's first Paris store

The door handle at 8 rue de Grenelle, Céline Daoust’s first store in Paris, is in polished jasper with green highlights. It embodies the passion devoted to precious stones by the Belgian designer, who spends six months of the year in Jaipur picking out each of her rock crystals, slice-cut diamonds, moonstones and tourmalines (her favorite stone), including the bi-colored watermelon variety in pink and green. Indian craftspeople then fix them into her delicate settings: multi-medallion necklaces, hand- or eye-shaped pendants, and reversible rings like charming talismans.
