Yellow gold comes in different beautiful golden hues depending on the blend, also called alloy. Pure 24kt gold is the base for all alloys, and while 24kt gold is naturally a distinct yellow, it is also less durable than lower karats. Therefore, most jewellery is made in 22K, 18K and 14K and its colour comes from combining pure gold with metals such as zinc and copper. Yellow gold has always been revered for its rarity and beauty and its use in jewellery can be traced back to ancient civilisations.
An alumnus of Studio Bercot in Paris, Charlotte Chesnais worked alongside Nicolas Ghesquière for 10 years when he was at Balenciaga. It was under his direction that she found her niche in jewellery design, when she conducted the launch of Balenciaga’s jewellery line. Eventually, she launched her own eponymous collection of jewellery. Today, she is working with some of France's best craftsmen when making her creations of organic shapes that seem to almost wrap around the body. It is with a certain fluidity, idiosyncratic silhouettes and an eye for the sculptural that Chesnais has established herself as a jewellery designer unlike any other.
