Mauboussin launched the aesthetically conservative “Le Premier Jour” (“The First Day”) collection this fall, with the romantic assistance of a marketing video set to the delicate notes of Chopin. Featuring little more than the occasional diamond flourish, the newest addition to the French jewelry house is prototypical of its subtle designs. Three-tiered rings offer a different take on Cartier’s trinity collection, while necklaces of 18kt gold are designed classically enough for any taste.
