● Thoughts on the creation of Marie Antoinette’s tiara from “The Rose of Versailles”
◆Jewelry Designer Yuko Yagi
Marie Antoinette, who was at the forefront of fashion at the time, seems to have preferred a style in which a pearl necklace was wrapped around her hair, a garnet necklace around her chest, and a bracelet around her wrist. Therefore, for the design of the tiara, we used a rose flower motif in a beautiful rococo style curve, and used garnet and pearls, which Marie Antoinette loved so much, to express “Queen Marie Antoinette” full of noble aura. rice field. Take a look at this tiara and imagine the world of the elegant Rose of Versailles and Queen Marie Antoinette.
◆Craftsman Yuuto Tanaka
I started by reading “The Rose of Versailles” and knowing the contents of the work. The rhodolite garnet frame has a rose watermark on the back side, and the nail on the lower abdomen is an image of a rose thorn. The 3.00ct diamond frame is set with a rose petal motif. I am grateful to have been involved in the milestone of the wonderful work “The Rose of Versailles”.
