Château de Lacoste Necklace
The crowning jewel of Lacoste is the Château, currently owned by fashion icon, Pierre Cardin. Aside from the history of the space, once inhabited by the infamous Marquise de Sade, the Château is a glorious architectural feature that frames the most breathtaking view of the Luberon Valley.
The on-foot trek to the château is not for the faint of heart, as the cobblestone pathway embarks at the entrance of the village and winds straight up the side of the mountain. The views along the way, however, are worth the not-so-easy hike and act as a reward to all who complete the daring adventure.
The Château de Lacoste Necklace acts as a memento to the plethora of walls that guide the pathway up to the château, along the periodic flowers that emerge through the crack, bringing life to the otherwise harsh stones. Each of these handcrafted necklaces feature a unique fusion of stones, reminiscing the perfect "chuck of wall" that guided the journey to the château.
Stroll through Kristen Baird® Jewelry’s newest jewelry-design collection, influenced by her whimsical, summer days spent in LaCoste, France. Gather vibrant flowers from a weekly, spirited provincial market. Duck behind colorful, medieval-arched doorways for an elusive embrace. Brush fingertips against ancient Roman castle walls—laced with fragile blooms, endless vines and romantic peepholes revealing the bold, organic palette of the valley below. Experience low-hanging branches bursting with deep-pink cherry blossoms, a patchwork quilt of bright emerald olive orchards and brilliant lavender fields awoken by buzzing bees in a sophisticated collection that bares every sensation imaginable—the Bonjour Belle Collection.
This Château de Lacoste necklace measures approximately 30mm wide, by 28mm tall. Depending on your style preference, the 1.5 mm sterling silver rolo chain is available in your choice of 16”, 18” or 20” length. The chain fastens with a lobster clasp in the back, for ease of wear. Additional chain lengths and gemstone options may be available upon request.
At Kristen Baird® Jewelry, we use partially to fully recycled sterling silver. The 18K gold used is certified 100% recycled and the gemstones we use are carefully selected in line with our commitment to social responsibility. Each piece is precisely handcrafted in our Savannah, GA studio, using a metalsmithing process called reticulation. As proof of authenticity, each piece is stamped with the .925 quality mark and whenever possible, is signed/marked with the Kristen Baird® maker’s mark, prior to delivery.
Due to the natural characteristics of handcrafted designs, each piece may contain slight variances from the photos shown. These variances allow uniqueness in every creation, but never take away from the quality of work or the complexity of design.
