Sautoirs! With Tatler naming them the next key jewellery trend and Kate Moss (pictured) flaunting the power of navel-dusting jewels at every entrance, these yard-long necklaces are hitting the headlines—and the waistlines—this season. Enter the new Isadora Sautoir, which combines natural jade, Tahitian black pearl, emerald, ruby, sapphire and yellow gold in an elegant and original piece.
A sautoir must be long, ladylike and valuable—and the Isadora has it all. It is the epitome of jewellery as art and the colours are simply stunning. The elegant natural green jade, hand carved in the shape of a leaf, is suspended from a natural gleaming black pearl from Tahiti. The chain is magnificent in its own right, designed with natural rubies, emeralds and sapphires in the raw, linked with elegant gold plate chain. The colours and shapes of the oval cabochon stones, together with the lustrous black pearl and jade, make the jewellery fabulously eyecatching as well as precious, without being ostentatious. These elegant shades harmonise with every outfit—it is surprising how the colours change and highlight whatever one is wearing: soft blues, lilacs and greens, autumn browns and wine, but also creams and yellows and greys.
The result is a fashionable necklace which catches the eye worn in so many different ways: à la Kate Moss with a plain black scoop-neck top and jacket, a trouser suit, and the dressiest of dresses for lunches, dinners and cocktails. It is very sophisticated—the perfect finishing touchs.
As to the all-important length, the Isadora chain is a yard long—36in (91cm)—and the jade leaf and Tahitian pearl add another 2.5in (6.4cm). The piece arrives in a smart case for presentation. There is one only.
