Les Jardins du Petit Trianon "Pluie de Glycines"

A neo-classical masterpiece of harmony, the Petit Trianon and its gardens are indissolubly linked to the memory of Marie-Antoinette. Here they are given one of their finest interpretations. The building sets the tone: simplicity is the keynote in this safe haven. A shower of brilliant-cut and pear-shaped diamonds flows into simple curves. Necklace, ring, bracelet and earrings appear to ooze with a stylised innocence, splashing the skin with sparkling droplets. This cascade of gems finishes in an exquisite knot, as a tribute to the Queen’s precious garments. Glimpses of winding wisteria dancing delicately in the wind can be caught in the distance.
