beads

an elemental form in essence, the sphere is present from the minute structure of the atom to the immensely large structure of the planets. without beginning or end, in perpetual movement, it expresses both infinity and permanence.

with the beads bracelet, le gramme reinterprets the iconic pearl bracelet.

each piece of jewellery in this collection is made entirely of precious metal (925 silver and 750 gold) from cable on which the beads are arranged to the invisible threaded clasp. attached to the perception of weight and quality, le gramme has worked with solid beads only, shaped in the mass in three diameters: 3mm, 5mm and 7mm.

the first two variations are made of 925 silver, the diameter of the beads varying the weight of the jewel:
- the polished 925 silver variation which reveals the mechanical brilliance of the precious metal.
- the brushed 925 silver variation which explores the optical illusion of the vertical brushing of each ball creating a horizontal reflection running through the whole object.

two additional variations in 3mm beads combine 925 silver with 750 yellow or red gold, the gold creating a precious break in the regularity of the bracelet:
- polished 925 silver with 1 ball or 5 balls in brushed 750 yellow gold.
- polished 925 silver with 1 ball or 5 balls in brushed 750 red gold.

le gramme also offers a version entirely in brushed 750 yellow gold with 3mm balls, cable and clasp in brushed or polished 750 yellow gold.
