Ornaments of seduction and bespoke mementos embellished in an opus of immaculate diamonds, velvety rubies, and enchanting sapphires that speak of multiple facets and feelings. HEDONE ROMANE by Jeanne-Marie Chan celebrates the luxury of being.
Coined from ‘hedonism’, that esteemed pleasure as the highest good; and ‘romanticism’, that exalted strong emotions and the imagination. HEDONE ROMANE fine and fashion jewellery is rooted in a philosophy of a hedonistic and romantic lifestyle. A flirtatiously passionate existence of love and glory and an operatic rhapsody of reason and sentiment.
Creative director, Jeanne-Marie Chan, has worked for several luxury houses including Van Cleef & Arpels and LVMH Watch & Jewellery (notably De Beers, Chaumet, Fred, and Dior) before pursuing her longstanding desire to share her vision of jewellery.
With her creative seat in Paris, Jeanne-Marie works with the finest French artisans and workshops. She takes fine jewellery beyond the fascination for simply form into a universe of romantic allusions expressed in glamourous gold, vivid precious stones and forms that are often irregularly paradoxal, curvaceously seductive, and always pompously dramatic.
Jeanne-Marie also does commissioned pieces for women whose exquisite taste carries both fine and fashion jewellery. Her unique limited hand-made treasures form part of ‘Travelling Collections’ and have been showcased at Le Bon Marche in Paris, the Monaco Charity Film Festival in Monte Carlo, Artcurial in Paris, as well as Kabiri and Selfridges in London.
In 2010, inspired by a hedonistic approach to creativity where art is free, instinctive, and beautifully unconditioned, Hedone Romane introduced a fashion jewellery capsule collection, ‘Fantasy’, available in luxury boutiques and concept stores in Europe.
