The great train robbery
It’s 1:00 pm in Calais France. The year is 1923. You’re aboard the trendiest of transports, Le Train Bleu (The Blue Train), on your way to the Riviera. It glides gracefully along the scenic Ligne de Grande Ceinture just outside of Paris, picking up more of Europe’s elite as it loops The City of Lights. This 15-carat Mediterranée Sapphire Pendant would have been right at home on that triumph of opulent turn-of-the-century travel. Taking a cue from that luxury locomotive, we designed the Mediterranée to be an absolute knock-out in blue and gold. A 15-carat, faceted enhanced sapphire shimmers and shines like the sky above Paris on a clear day. The gold-finished setting is full of dynamic detail, including a pattern of twists and bends that flows around the impressive center stone.
