When it comes to jewelry, French designers know that when it comes to creating an ensemble that is equal parts pretty and chic, the right balance of sparkle and shine can make or break a look. This Paris Fashion Week, look no further than the city's current guard of jewelers to nail that French girl sense of je ne sais quoi. Charlotte Chesnais presented a collection with mix of graphic and fluid lines, with re-designed basics and abstract shapes creating a set of little sculptures. The designer is a master of tasteful quirk, having worked for Kenzo, Mayiet, Maison Kitsuné, and Paco Rabanne, whom she still collaborates with on their leather goods and jewelry. Sophie Buhai showed a delightfully architectural collection, available at The Line, while Louise Damas shows, season after season, a collection based on the notion of poetic femininity. With this French set, expect semi-precious pearls mixed with brass and crystal, gold hair adornments, and just the right smattering of diamonds.
