"Crystal is inherently sensual and noble. How it feels in your hand, its freeness of form, and the way it captures the light are all such natural attributes. All of our jewelry is a reflection of that aesthetic," states Baccarat's jewelry product manager, Nadine Larnaudie. The company's jewelry collection, first introduced in 1993, comprises an array of whimsically colorful and sculpturally artistic motifs, and the latest manifestation is the Les Précieux line—crystal jewelry accented with precious gemstones. The Sherazade collar, for instance, is made of faceted ruby-red beads interspersed with ruby rondelles ($12,875). The Hortensia necklace features gems and crystal flowers suspended from delicate gold wire (differing styles and sizes range from $1,875 to $13,800). "Without crystal," Baccarat representative Anne Schuhmacher says, "Baccarat is nothing. It exists at the core of everything we design." So what's next for the French firm? Their first-ever women's wristwatch, expected to hit stores this fall. A timepiece made of crystal? "Absolutely," Schuhmacher replies. For information: 800-777-0100.
