High jewellery cuts fluid forms in the ‘Luminous Lines’ collection from Marie Mas. Waves of diamonds eschewing traditionally rigid silhouettes to trace the curves of collarbones and undulate around the earlobe. The collection is comprised of two necklaces, four pieces for pierced ears, an ear jewel, a bracelet and a ring.
The ‘Luminous Lines’ line by Marie Mas features waves of diamonds that disregard normally rigid designs to mimic the curvature of collarbones and undulate around the earlobe.
‘The collection is primarily influenced by body contours,’ says Marie Mas creator and creative director Marie Cabirou. ‘I adore how the sun sets and exposes the smallest aspects of the body, so I wanted to accentuate those little areas that we don’t usually notice, such the collar bones, the dip of the neck, and the wristbone. Surrealism also inspires me, and I loved the notion of drawing lines on the body that hold like magic. The compilation represents a synthesis of such concepts.’

The set, which includes two necklaces, four pierced ear pieces, an ear jewel, a bracelet, and a ring, is made of 18ct rose gold and diamonds. The pieces’ adjustable closures assure smooth practicality, producing pieces that appear to defy gravity in their flexible wearability.
‘I tried to show the fluidity by putting lines of gold and diamonds on the body that hold like magic,’ Cabirou continues. ‘The primary difficulties were technological in nature. The challenge was how to make the parts appear easy while yet appearing to be held by magic.
It was also crucial to me to maintain the brand DNA of movement, and I wanted the pieces to have a combination of softness and hardness so that they are both created and comfortable. I experimented with many approaches to make the major elements of the diamonds supple and elegantly follow the varied curves of the body.’
French jewellery designer Marie Caribou – who designs under the label Marie Mas (a name taken from her maternal grandmother) – creates beautifully intriguing pieces that stand out for their playful, transformative quality.
Since launching her line in 2017, she’s become known for designs crafted in 18kt rose gold, set with scores of stones in tones of pink and blue, with settings that are fashioned to move, so the wearer can choose which shade to reveal.
