From an early age, Céline d'Aoust has always been fascinated by stones. Her mother, she gained the knowledge of the energy inducing properties of gems and Stones. Céline unveils in 2009 her collection of precious and semi-precious gems. Since then, she’s been travelling a lot : every year she meticulously chooses every stone with which she will work in Jaipur. She works on energy and light with the best craftsmen. It is in her studio in Brussels that alchemy takes places : ideas become jewelry, poetry and luxury meet. Céline d’Aoust is very attentive to the details of each piece of jewelry. Her art is based on the characteristics and the symbolic values of the stones. And she focuses on playing with contrasts, like the "harsh" and precious elements. All her jewelry is handmade. Her creations are unique and delicate. Céline is passionate about the fascinating color palette of the tourmaline. Colorful tourmaline develops in a liquid-rich environment and some of these liquids are often captured as inclusions during crystal growth. The most typical inclusions resemble wire-shaped cavities parallel to the length of the crystal. The inclusions are much more visible in gems with light tone and low saturation. Céline d'Aoust considers these inclusions to be an essential element of the nature of the stone. In this way, imperfections are celebrated!
