A new season is here, and although we’re excited about the future, we can’t help but reminisce about the past. Of course, we’re thinking about Paris and the memories that have permeated into every corner of our hearts season after season. From the days spent by the river under the summer sun to admiring the city’s various illuminations in the winter, our constant muse has provided us with so many beautiful images.
Often referred to as the city of love and lights, Paris has captured the hearts of millions of people around the world. It's a place where moments are eternally cherished. For Didier Dubot, Paris has been more than just a city; it has been our continual source of inspiration.
Our latest edition of the Mon Paris collection strives to capture all the greatness of the city in a sleek package, and we believe we’ve done it in an incredibly clever way. Learn more about the secrets of Rue de DD below!
Rue de DD
We have always been fascinated by the interconnected nature of Parisian streets, which can be said to all connect into one. They’re a place where time and memories are accumulated, which made them the perfect inspiration for our latest Mon Paris collection. Named Rue de DD, the streets of Paris became the ideal symbols of our long journey over the past decade.
For us, just seeing the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, and the masterpieces from the Louvre and Orsay museums does not mean that you can fully understand and know Paris. Instead, exploring the city’s endless array of streets and connecting with their residents is the real Paris. From the contemporary art galleries in Le Marais to the eclectic boutiques of Canal Saint-Martin and culinary delights of Oberkampf, Paris is home to a diverse range of subcultures.
The Rue de DD collection embodies all the different types of Parisian streets and our memories from the past ten years. The straight and crossing lines on the surface of the jewelry represent the streets themselves, designed on an attractive, soft square silhouette that is unique to the Mon Paris collect étoile ring selection.
These captivating rings are more than meets the eye. Each line is meticulously placed to draw a beautiful map of the French capital. With their bold square silhouettes, the rings make striking statements on their own, but wearing them together is where the magic happens. The rings are designed to be layered in order to complete a hidden map of Paris, resulting in distinctive pieces that not only look beautiful but tell a story.
The Passage Of Time
The phrase "collect moments, not things" has always been the motto that has guided us on our path. We believe that life is all about cherishing the moments we spend with our loved ones, and creating memories that last a lifetime.
The Mon Paris collection is completed with exquisite diamond rings which express the passage of time through their colors. Selected to represent the four seasons, they symbolize the continuous charm that Paris has throughout the year.
Vibrant yellow diamonds represent spring and the sunny skies that bless Paris with rebirth. The color revives the city, causing its numerous gardens and park to come alive with magnolias, daffodils, wisteria, and cherry blossoms.
Brilliant green and blue diamonds represent summer, and the lush colors that take over the city. The green of the trees that line the streets and the vast parks and gardens, and the gentle shimmer of the Seine as people flock to its shores to dance the night away.
Rich brown diamonds represent autumn and the earthy hues that take over the city. The lavish natural tapestry adds a feeling of warmth and comfort to the bustle of Paris, drawing residents and visitors alike to admire the deep colors of the city’s natural spaces.
Mysterious and rare black diamonds represent winter, and the city’s numerous festivities during the holiday season. The nights may be longer, but the city’s dazzling lights keep it shining bright no matter how dark the sky gets.
Our path has been long driven by our love for Paris and the memories we’ve collected there over the years. The Rue de DD collection is a testament to our journey, reminding us that life is all about appreciating the special moments.
