Printed briolette

On its latest fabric design, the Maison Thevenon takes a necklace by Marie-Hélène de Taillac, and thus showcases her easily recognizable hallmark: the briolette. She’s the designer who put this drop-shaped gemstone cut back in fashion in the early 2000s. Her “Dolce Vita” necklace inspired the illustrator, Prune Cirelli, who could quite easily have chosen the “Rainbow” or “Scarf” models made up of dozens of light and twinkling, colored gemstones.
