BY Celine Daoust
Celine has always been fascinated by gemstones from childhood, absorbing knowledge from her mother about their symbolic values and energy-inducing properties. Celine likes to work with tourmalines, with a passion for the mesmerising colour palette the stone offers. The natural inclusions in the gems are celebrated, highlighting the beauty of the imperfect. She plays with texture and contrast to significant effect. Celine frequently travels to Jaipur, hand-picking exceptional stones, on return to her Brussels studio setting the alchemy begins; ideas become jewels where poetry meets refinement.
