Céline Daoust has always been fascinated by stones and recalls playing with her grandmother's jewelry, inheriting a passion for its symbolic value. From her early age, she has been instinctive about life and jewelry designer, preferring an inclusion or a cloudy bit over a perfect stone. From her mother she has acquired the knowledge of the energy-inducing properties of gems and stones.
Céline unveiled her signature collection in 2009, and since then she travels back and forth to Jaipur several times each year where she meticulously chooses each stone she will work with. Exceptional gems and authentic savoir-faire. Céline has a passion for the fascinating palette of colors of the tourmaline. The energy, the light and working with the finest artisans overwhelms her.
It is, however, in her Brussels studio that the alchemy begins, where ideas become hand made jewels, where poetry meets refinement. Céline really exploits the tourmaline stone, one of her signatures. Céline develops in her fine jewelry collection a remarkable palette of tourmaline jewels, which grow in an environment rich in liquids with some of those liquids captured as inclusions during the crystal growth.
Céline Daoust considers these inclusions as an essential element to the nature of the stone. The imperfections are celebrated.
