Haute Joaillerie: Bvlgari, Dior, Chaumet, Dolce & Gabbana, Boucheron and Louis Vuitton continue to explore the art de vivre.
BVLGARI – Bvlgari Festa high jewellery collection
Entitled “Festa”, the spectacular high jewellery collection of over a hundred Bulgari jewels and watches is inspired by emblematic figures whose destinies helped shape the legend of Rome, such as Marie Mancini or Margherita di Savoia. Two exceptional creations stand out in particular. The Palio necklace and bracelet reference the famous horse race in the heart of Siena each year. As a tribute to the contrades – the medieval districts of Siena – Bulgari master jewelers meticulously reproduced the colors of each coat of arms. Gold, enamel, diamonds as well as tourmalines, turquoise, coral and jade give birth to jewels that evoke the sheer happiness of a festive Italy.
BOUCHERON – Boucheron Hiver Impérial high jewellery collection
In the 1850th, pearls were the height of refinement, at times they could be worth more than diamonds. Boucheron Femme Boréales intends to bring back the special aurora of pearls. Boucheron Baïkal necklace is one of the masterpieces of the Hiver Impérial high jewelry collection. This necklace is composed of more than 2000 pearls. Set with a 78.33 carat oval Santa Maria aquamarine, Baikal is an ode to the magnificence of imperial jewels. This masterpiece is decorated with pearls and pear shaped diamonds set on moonstones.
L’Anneau d’Or (The Golden Ring), third chapter of the Hiver Impérial high jewelry collection, is inspired by the rooftops and domes of Russian architecture.
True to Boucheron’s tradition of multiwear, Flocon Impérial, can be worn in five different ways as a necklace, a 5.20 carat diamond ring, a pair of earrings, a fibula and hair accessories. So many choices, so little time!
DIOR – DIOR À VERSAILLES, CÔTÉ JARDINS COLLECTION
Versailles, act II. The new high jewellery collection by Victoire de Castellane for Dior continues with its exploration of the royal estate. In contrast to the ornamental details of the château – a source of inspiration for the previous collection – here the emphasis is on the gardens with their architectural layout and leafy backdrop.
The new Louis Vuitton Conquêtes high jewelry collection celebrates the strong and independent Louis Vuitton woman.
For the first time, two of the Maison’s signature motifs – the Monogram flower and the V – are brought together to create designs in exquisite gemstones. The pieces in the collection are dazzling with opals, imperial topaz, Paraiba tourmalines, mandarin or tsavorite garnets.
An ode to ephemeral magic moments such as an engagement, wedding, formal balls or an evening at the opera or 1920s music hall, the Chaumet est une fête collection evokes exceptional experiences rendered even more memorable by sublime jewelry. The jewels connect with four settings around the world: “Chaumet Pastorale Anglaise” celebrates the freshness of nature and fanciful British eccentricity; “Chaumet Aria Passionata” pays tribute to great opera performances at La Scala in Milan; “Chaumet Rhapsodie Transatlantique” evokes the unabashed elegance of New York’s Upper West Side; and “Chaumet Valses d’Hiver” is an ode to the radiant lightness of Strauss.
